I haven't seen it stated yet but there are print options that don't
consider page options and so I would think that it is a distinct
advantage to have the 'Format => Page' options separate from the 'Print
=> Properties'

For example...

If you want to print 4 page up on a single sheet of paper...you might
choose US Letter size in Landscape mode in Format => Page but choose to
print 4 of those per page in Landscape mode on Ledger size paper.
