I was reading through part of gcpm and found the following conflict:-

21. Another change is that a single named page will result in a page break both before and after the element (in CSS 2.0 the page break after the element was conditional on subsequent 'page' values).

21.1 (under one or more named pages optionally follow by auto)

A page break is generated before the element unless the first named page in the list is the same as the current page.

Based on the examples given in 21.1 I would say the latter is correct and what we wanted.
