Actually no.

 From my point of view, I'm fine with these being in the user agent 
stylesheet by default.
If the author believes his sites are better printed with other default 
settings, it is ok for an author stylesheet to overwrite user agent 
settings.
And as soon as the user sais "force print urls in headers/footers", this 
is a user decision.

Actually, the cascading rules are pretty intelligent.

I think, this is pretty well what the paged module working group is 
working on...
