I can indeed relate, I'm trying to keep a list of modules which are
likely to impact EPUB 3.1 at some point, hence the Readium CSS project,
and it's super painful.  

To clarify, this is the reason why I tried to find some "scope" in CSS
Modules in the first place; I was wondering where the limit should be
drawn. Basically, all CSS modules dealing with layout and text are
related to publishing.

The CSS WG is looking at both, and does not have a solid consensus yet.
