Thanks for your explanation. It does seem logical.

But where does 587 come from in 8,8,834,587 ?

A4 is 553.

Ink based printers are designed to do this because they can just catch the ink that gets oversprayed, and you can clean/empty the waste ink container periodically. Toner is different because the paper with the toner has to travel through the fuser, and then what doesn't get fused gets picked up in the waste toner bin AFTER the fusing process. The toner that gets left behind on a toner based printer has to have some means of being collected.
