(...the context being paged media headers and footers...)

This concern was explicitly considered during the Mt. View f2f earlier this year as a Last Call issue for css3-page.  The Working Group's conclusion was that the cascade provides sufficient control for page headers/footers.  Members can see http://www.w3.org/Style/Group/css3-src/css3-page/issues.htm#issue9.

Well, we certainly look forward to your detailed proposal. ;-)  But as this has been through last call and there are implementations, it will be important to consider backward-compatibility.

Best wishes,

Melinda
