I don't believe #4 is what happens today.  I believe that some implementations synthesize a default print range based on their best guess of what parts of the document look like they have content in them.  This derivation of a default range is done differently in different applications.  Some may derive this by prompting the user.

So we bump of your #4.

Since #2 and #3 have nothing to do with the ODF document, I don't think we should say anything about them.

That leaves #1, which has no defined behavior, which we could explicitly state as implementation-defined.

You are really left with either having #1 be implementation defined, or having #4 be implementation-defined.  I'd rather have it be #1 and not go down the road of specifying user actions that lead no where certain.
