It is conceivable to me that dots of different sizes could be 
printed. My recollection is that that is what HP does, but I don't 
have the manual handy. Since a printed dot is not the same as a 
particle of toner, there could be lots of ways of changing the number 
of toner particles in a dot, hence its intensity.

There is no reason in principle why the same trick could not be done 
with color, though, again, I don't know if anyone does it.
