I am not sure if you are for or against supporting page-break-* on <BR>... I think it is a good thing, whether it needs a spec change or not is another question...

Added as CSS2.1 Issue 52:
   http://csswg.inkedblade.net/spec/css2.1#issue-52

I plan to rewrite the page-break-* code during the Gecko 2.0
cycle. Unless you're sure there will be compatibility problems,
my inclination is to leave the spec as-is.
