Mmm....no. Not unless you want all devices to give identical output.
Different devices have different characteristics, media sizes, physical
fonts, etc. postscript() and x11() are just two different device

However, having dev.print/print.plot departing (much) from what you
see on the screen *is* probably a bug (although that obviously assumes
that the hardcopy device is PostScript).
