In GCPM there's a proposal to extend the 'page' property by allowing
it to take lists of page names. Each page the element prints into takes
the next page name in the series until the last one.

The 'page' property inherits. This is incompatible with that proposal.
Consider:

   <div>
     <p>paragraph that prints on 2 pages</p>
     <p>paragraph that prints on 2 pages</p>
   </div>

div { page: first second third fourth; }

The expectation would be that the content prints over four pages,
named first, second, third, fourth.

But because 'page' inherits it doesn't. Each paragraph has a
'page' value of "first second third fourth". So what will happen
is that the content prints on four pages, named first, second,
first second.

I'm trying to prepare CSS3 Paged Media for Last Call.. so it would
be good to know if we need to make 'page' not inherit or anything
like that.
