There are two ways to implement that use-case into current CSS

1) One <div> per page, and some DOM manipulation (visibility or display,
with additional keys events)

2) One <div>, fixed positioned, which contains the big content (and columns,
heading, what you want)
you can use
overflow:visible;
and scroll page-by-page focusing on content then PgUp / PgDn, or using the
custom buttons that in turns calls scrolling CSSOM API

(either we could say that overflow:hidden show allow scrolling through CSSOM
and get rid of scrollbars)

Analizing further the first example you gave, I eventually understood what
you meant:
putting things like page numbers - page heading - page notes, inside a
non-paged media

In that case, assuming that navigation elements and pseudo-elements are
moved to non-scrolled areas, the entire window can then become the @page,
without any further issue.
