At the f2f I briefly discussed background printing at the end of
Tuesday.  (minutes:
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Aug/0178.html>,
thread: <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Jul/0341.html>).

I had asked people to chime in, but not many people did.  Florian
commented that he was in the camp that thought this should be
triggered simply by the print stylesheet setting values.  (This has
flaws, both purity-wise and technical*.)  Before the f2f, Christoph
Päper argued similarly.  Fantasai said that she thought making the
property per-element was overkill, but otherwise seemed supportive.
(The minutes shows that she argues that this should be a property on
the document instead, if that was a thing that existed.)  She also
suggests it show up in GCPM.

Does anyone else have objections?  If not, Håkon, would you mind
adding it?  WebKit's got a patch pending that we don't want to land
until the group gives at least the initial okay of adding it to a
draft.
