Comparing this list to Word we see that this is actually the same - our local printer provides a very redundant list of supported paper sizes.

I'm not sure the redundant items don't have some difference compared to each other (like A4 but with different paper tray or somesuch), so maybe we can mark this as NAB?

Full list

My list has no obvious duplicates. In any case it would be desirable to have more structure in this list, eg. per separator lines and per sorting. And duplicates makes no sense, in particular when users cannot have any idea which one to pick (if it's some driver property such as the tray).
