Yes, this process is exactly where regions have originated. In print
layout pages are partitioned into the regions (or frames) and then the
content is poured into the regions. This is how magazine-like layouts are
most commonly created. In fact you are as likely to see different styling
for an article in the first region of the article (e.g. a small opening
section across multiple columns with bigger text and bright color) as on
the first page, so a region is a better point to apply special styling
than a page.
