I don't believe I understand the issues a non-scrolling display
raises when interacting with other attributes such as screen size.

If for example, the available vertical size of the URL is longer 
than the size of the display, how is this resolved?  Is a paged
resource with pages longer than requested better or worse than a
vertically long resource?  How does one calculate the vertical
length of a resource when local treatment of fonts will cause the
length to vary?  

I agree non-scrolling displays are relevant and the tag
UA-media-screen-paged will be added to the draft.

Andy Mutz.
