I would say there is only minor CUPS inconsistency (most of the times it
is correctly disabled; few remaining ports should be converted I think);
for X11 it's a bit more tricky: roughly, if a port is likely enough to
be used in non-X11 environment (or it's a server only thing), no X11
support by default seems reasonable for package.  Otherwise having X11
dependency is natural, since those bits would be installed by 99% of
desktop users anyways.
