For the different pages case, I don't think it's even defined.  CSS
doesn't, as far as I know, define how positions on different pages
relate to each other, and I tend to think that's probably a good
thing and it shouldn't define such a relationship.

Otherwise I think it's probably reasonable, though it's a pain to
implement.
