Ok, at least we all agree that it's not what the user sees :)

Like, adding contextual content for print. Just like your main content
is not the only thing on the page, same may hold true for the print.

I think this discussion is about to turn into debunking of specific
application requirements and approaches, but I'll bite:

a) my invoice format requires a timestamp that says something like
this: printed by [person] on [timestamp].

b) To capture the essence of the browsing session, I would like to
build a breadcrumb at the bottom of the printed page, displaying
titles and urls of pages the user have visited on the site during this
