Are you intending that browsers default to (1) or (2)?

At least in Webkit, we're aiming for (2) (by default, print
backgrounds when the author requests).  However, I suspect there's
already a decent number of pages that use !important in 'background'
for some reason or another, and thus will end up printing backgrounds
somewhat randomly.
