The placement of page boxes on page sheets is outside the scope of this
specification. There is no direct mechanism to determine how a UA is placing
the page boxes and, therefore, no selectors or pseudo classes based on this

It could be possible that use of Media queries for duplex printing could let
a UA use a style sheet that an author provided for this purpose. However,
this, also, is outside the scope of this document.
