I don’t understand what it would mean to break and honor either overflow:scroll or overflow:visible.

Why not just divorce it from overflow completely? It can just be about whether or not you paginate in that last region. If so, I'd change the values to "break" and "none." Then in both cases overflow would still be honored, and there's no weird extra clipping produced by this other property. That makes more sense to me than having one value produce clipping while the other uses overflow and still gives you the capabilities you want.

What does it mean for content to "not display"?

For example, what should CSSOM return for getBoundingClientRect etc? Does it mean CSS boxes are not generated, or something else?

My naïve answer is “whatever happens to entirely clipped content with overflow:hidden.” Is there a definition that answers your questions for hidden content? I didn’t see an answer in section 11 of CSS 2.1 ( http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visufx.html )
