Oh, sorry.  This is a proposal, externally speaking.
I'm already using it internally in my own HTML formatting tool.

I puzzled over the problem of how to force page breaks in a way that
would fit in with existing HTML and noticed the CLEAR attribute.  It
already does similar kinds of things (depending on your definition of
similar).  Existing browsers just ignore it.
