This sounds reasonable to me as well. I have one worry though: even though  
it is the most important change UAs do for printing, disabling backgrounds  
isn't necessarily the only one, and maybe we should try to have something  
a little more generic that can deal with the rest.

But maybe I am over thinking this, as your proposal addresses effectively  
the dominant use case.

Let's talk schedule this for a coming conf call, and if the group agrees,  
I'll add it to the spec.
