Done.

I've added this text:

  In vertical text, the used height replaces used width in this
  calculation.

The draft now states:

  In paged media, columns that do not fit within the page
  are moved to the next page.

If we need to say that page breaks should not appear inside line
boxes (I'm not sure we do), this should be done in css3-page, no?

I've added this text after the pseudo-algorithm:

  In paged media, user agents may perform this calculation on a
  per-page basis.
