Interesting question. It is especially pertinent if you are thinking
about using "Zoom" layouts, which make it even easier to enlarge text in
ways that don't break a page into an unreadable mess. (1)
Imagine letting people switch to a zoom layout and then print from that.
This is a scenario that calls for no print style sheet, and having the
zoom sheet set for type="screen, projection, print".
Another scenario suggests having no explicit print style sheet, or one
that makes absolutely no font-size declarations.
