We can't handle all what if's for the future.
The objection to leaving it unspecified has been quoted.
Nasty user experience.

Even on a server someone is asking to print *something*
~Ask them what they want to print.

Use a get out clause for the 'final' clause.

Without a specified or stored range the operation is unspecified.

That should be clear enough. Without falling back to implementor defined.
