I think your concern about mobile devices emphasizes why this is probably a bad
idea: the fact that such a feature would make no sense for many sorts of user
agents suggests that it's very fundamentally beyond the scope of HTML. I think
that printing is a clear example of invoking page/system behavior, which to me
seems like a job for client-side scripting.
Hopefully I'm not off-base here.
