I have never thought of considering only the "saved" version of the
document. In fact I think that is quite dangerous since "printing the
document" should clearly refer to the version as currently edited
whether saved or not or would you expect that printing only prints the
document as last saved?

In practice for which application? I am pretty sure that in Excel, File
\Print Area\Show Print Area shows the print area as last set not
necessarily the last printrange that was set before the document was
last saved.

Are you telling me that the printrange contains sheet information? I
know that Gnumeric and I believe that also Excel and OpenOffice.org have
printareas that are sheet specific.
