All this boils down to is two different ideas of printing really:

1. Print as specified in CSS. This typically produces better output in pages 
that have been designed for printing.
2. Print screenshot. This produces an exact print of what is seen on the 
screen. This produces worse results in some cases due to page-breaking 
problems etc.

1 is nice for printing papers, but 2 is what most users expect.

A choice like this "should" be available in a print dialog.
