I do not see any problems with it.

The @page thing describes not an [DOM]element but rather viewport or 
something close to it. So its properties are of different namespace/domain.

As far as I can see it is not conflicting with the 'size' property of 
dom element if it will be defined. The size in @page media is kind of 
specialization of more generic size of the box that I propose.
