What I am suggesting is that to the to media groups "paged" and
"continuous" should be added a third, "stream" or something similar. This
should be used for media currently falling into the "continuous" group
which resemble aural in that the content is advanced automatically and
only a small amount is available to the user at any given moment. This
group might apply to a small braille terminal, or a text ticker, etc. (as
well as aural itself, of course).

Are there any plans for CSS3 to allow media selection by group? "@media
paged" is simpler, more meaningful, and more future-proof than "@media
print, projection, emboss". It would also allow for the many cases where
the group may vary depending on the implementation. (e.g. media tv and
handheld can be either paged or continuous.)
