It is not only when the user changes his/her mind. Being able to choose which pages to print in the print preview would be very handy especially when printing websites. I cannot choose which (how much) pages to print in the print dialog before having seen the print preview, because I don't know how much pages the print will create and which of the for me unimportent side content is printed on extra pages so I can skip those. When I print webpages I always have to go into the print preview, leave the print preview, start the print dialog again and choose which pages to print. That's a bit long winded.
