note : I would gladly pay Lego Customer Services for them sending me replacement stickers so long as the price was reasonable. I can't imagine it would cost a massive amount to print a sticker sheet, even if the set was old (unless you have to re-make the print "template" then I guess it might cost more)

I don't think it would be a massive issue for them to print off a mass of spares and then store them and sell them to customers who need them. They could circumvent the whole problem in future by providing 2 sticker sheets with each set, although obviously that doesn't solve the problem of the legacy sets.
It would certainly be interesting to know how much of an issue storing print blocks is. How do you know, for example, if it's not all digital these days and in fact, the only issue is finding the file, loading it into a computer and then pressing "go" ?
I did my work experience in a printers some 15 years ago and even then they were largely digital !
