Great proposal and this relates very closely with some of the current
development in blender2.8
For 2.8 the idea is that we can have set application templates that can
remove things from the UI
to make Blender simpler for tasks as you suggested (3D printing). We
currently could use someone
that can help develop this template and you could easily extend this to
just enable your add-on.
