The bottom two may well be printers waste -- what about the top two? Also, do printers waste stamps have any value?

That is an interesting question. How would you define printer's waste? For the purposes of sending a letter through the post, it could be argued that selvedges, traffic lights, printer markings, etc. are not intended to be part of the final product for the unenlightened consumer and are therefore waste. The fact that philatelists gain considerable insight from such elements enhances the value of stamps. So anything that gives further insight into production techniques could be of value and worthy of collecting.

From this series no imperforated stamps are known, so i still consider it as printers waste, yet, there is a market for it.

That is not correct.

Printer's wastes are faulty printings of stamps, accidental or experimental, which are supposed to be destroyed by the printer.

Unfortunately these often got smuggled out to feed the philatelic market and hence they have some monetary values to the collectors.

For example, the Kochchi printer's waste posted by me above, was sold at €240 in David Feldman SA Sale dt. Sep 25,2013.
