Yeah fine, for you it's not rocket science and you understand the issues. I'm disinclined to involve users in decisions when they lack sufficient knowledge to make a decision.

A tax form probably can be printed a light brown and the government isn't going to get too pissy about it. I would think. In any event, a text document doesn't go through an ICC profiling print path - it's something else. Either black only. Or presentation of a user selectable "economy black" to "darker black" option.
