Windows 2008 Printing and Windows Firewall

The geniuses at Microsoft decided to force you to enable the Windows Firewall to share printers, I know you can turn it on and then turn it off after sharing but is there a way to completely turn off whatever forced you to turn on the firewall so you can leave the firewall disabled?

How are you disabling the firewall? Are you stopping the service? If you are stopping service don't do that the service needs to be running but you can disable the firewall by going through these steps.
