Function is already there with "find" on the web page, select with mouse, then
"print selection".  I don't see this request signficantly improving the product,
given the average print scenario described.

Is there a stronger argument for the enhancement?

well, it would make it easier to find the pages you need to print, for example
1-3, 15, 92, 153-186.

selection printing is just a nuisance in those cases and you cannot see any page
numbers in normal view so you cannot determine the appropriate page numbers.
