The 2.1 specification for the value "fixed" of the "position" property
says that "the box is rendered on every page" for the print media type.
Shouldn't this be refined in the face of page types? Different page
types might have different constraints for fixed boxes. In CSS3 we
have named pages again and then even the presence of fixed boxes may
vary. Since fixed boxes are not part of the flow, a possibility is
perhaps to use the "page" property to express the differentiation.

Best regards,
