In case any lurkers are reading this and wondering why this is such an issue, it's because drywall consists of three layers: paper, a thick layer of gypsum plaster, and paper on the other side. When you paste wallpaper directly to unprimed drywall it glues the wallpaper and the drywall paper layer together pretty permanently. If you try to take the wallpaper down and the drywall paper comes along with it, you're screwed and that's when you have to repair or replace the drywall.
