To be really, brutally honest, IMHO it adds processing time and visual 
clutter, while adding only limited user-level functionality. Printable 
pages in most modern browsers are possible by simply adding an extra 
'print' CSS stylesheet to the existing output, and viewing the XML 
source behind each page is only fun for ourselves.

Please don't be mad, it's just IMHO.
