Rod, 

I printed out the document http://www.w3.org/TR/P3P/, and with a default (new)
profile, with no modifications, the printed document was using about an 8pt
sans-serif font (or less) which is not the easiest to read.

I don't believe that it is intended that that should be the size of the printed 
text. I couldn't find any 'media' rules that tried to set such a small print 
size. Also, when I removed portions of the text of the document, the printed 
size was something more usable (about a 10pt sans-serif).

I expect that this is something going wrong with the elaborate style rules used
in the W3 TR documents.
No, this is just the fact that shrink-to-fit is on by default and the page has
some pretty wide <pre> blocks.  Turning off shrink-to-fit makes it print nicely.
