When I look at Gmail's interface, there seems an obvious omission in there when you've got the option "Open as Google Document", which is "Print". Why download the file locally? Why have it live on your terminal at all? I've got a print server on a wireless network at home. I wouldn't mind installing something from Google that allows me to route printing there. In fact I'd much prefer it.

The interface could be a pretty easy one, I think. If you had a specialized Google Talk application, perhaps running on port 80 relying on the client pulling more than Google's servers pushing jobs, I think you'd have it.
