What I imagine as "what a page is" would be defined by the spec
that defines 'overflow: paged'. It would redefine Paged Media
as equivalent to 'overflow: paged' propagated to the initial
containing block. The @page rules would style pages within the
'overflow: paged' pager (vs scroller), and similar or equivalent
syntax would be used to style pages in non-root pagers.
