If the CPD will be extensible by the application, bi-directional
communication has to be there, anyway.
In my understanding, e.g. for Thunderbird, essentially all the "Page
Setup..." will move into the CPD (?)
[gwp] I did not know this was an intent; I typically don't think of application page setup related to printing other than the application typically needs to know the minimum margins.
          So, in this case the dialog will change any "PRINT" button to "OK" and return to applicatoins

So don't forget about the "Portrait / Landscape"-Option, which requires
the application to generate a new preview.
[gwp] Yes, all apps typically have a landscape/portrait.  But when printing n-up within the dialog this has the meaning of orientation of the n-pages on the printed-page and really not done by the application.
