Yes, but if I remember correctly, the location is the "human" where
the printer is located, or anything else. For the location of one
printer, I have "Printer in Mike's workshop."

You should not need this with either method - at lease when I go to
add a printer in system-config-printers, it first searches for new
printers, and should find the new network printer. (I prefer the WEB
interface, but both should be working.)

Another advantage, if you have CUPS set to allow administration from
a machine on the network, is to open a web browser from that
machine, and have CUPS on the other machines open - each in their
own tab. I also find the help in the web based version easier to
use. Then again, one thing about Linux is choice - you can chose the
 method that works best FOR YOU.
