I don’t disagree. My implementation concerns are around UI, not layout. But I guess if it is to deal with otherwise unusable pages, I can set aside the dislike to scrollbars and let them help…

Overflow-x/overflow-y – it's a good point. It is possible to define what all combinations mean where only one of the two is 'paged' but for implementation I would very much rather prefer that they are required to both be 'paged' or not in CSS3…

I actually think overflow-x:scroll; overflow-y: paged; would be quite useful.
