LibreOffice has already supported a similar solution to save more ink
with the following improvements:

• Scalable ink saving (20-90%, or arbitrary values);
• extreme ink saving (>96%) with excellent readability;
• better layout on low resolution (<1200 dpi): instead of ugly spotted
letters it uses low level methods of printers to provide consistent
• it works with all fonts.

Usage: choose Grey 80%...Grey 10% colors for your text (you can add
more colors to the palette:
For extreme ink saving, set outlined character formatting (=~60% ink
saving) and combine with Gray 90% text color.
