The XSL FO SG's understanding is that an important goal for
W3C style-related specifications is to maintain consistency 
across the various models.

The XSL FO SG developed the XSL simple page master model based
on the recommendations of the CSS WG at the time, and we expected
that the CSS model would be consistent with this. 

Therefore, the XSL FO SG does not accept this disposition of
our Last Call comment on CSS3 Paged Media Module.
