Print Dialog Interaction (was Re: Rant Re Rev Documentation)

I have a bit of trouble envisioning why it would be important for me  
to hard-code into an application the number of copies of a document  
to be printed. If the application requires that 3 copies of the  
report be generated, can we not trust the user to enter "3" into the  
"number of copies" field of the dialog? Or am I really missing  
something important and obvious here?

Maybe this is more an exemplar of the kinds of issues people are  
concerned with than it is a complaint about Rev's design?
