My guess is it's mostly cheap companies skimping out.  But the error is on
both sides of the "correct" standard, so I dunno.  Paper marketed
specifically for printers does seem to be more standardized, but I've
still seen a noticable (maybe 1/16") difference between sheets.  That's
nothing for a printer, but it's enough to get your resolution subtily
wrong. :(
