I would like the ability to specify a map scale for printTemplate outputs in the ArcGIS Javascript API.  I am primarily using the new Finder app deployed on my web server which references an AGOL webmap.  The ability to specify a map scale exists within the default print widget in the Flex API and I would like to see this functionality extended to the Javascript API.

Esri will need to extend the printTemplate class so that you can set the "mapOptions" parameters.  See this link  http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/rest/apiref/exportwebmap_spec.html. If you can construct the Web_Map_as_JSON for the print task manually, you can specify the scale.
