Region overflow proposal

At the last face-to-face meeting, we had a discussion [1], I believe
somewhat inspired by the proposal in [2], about a mechanism for
creating regions by auto-generating boxes in response to overflow.

I've written a draft further fleshing out this idea.  This draft is
available at:

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2012Aug/att-0005/Overview.html

I'm hoping we can find some time to discuss this at the face-to-face
meeting next week.

If the group decides it's interested, I think such a draft may also
be a sensible place to put the paginated overflow ideas that are
currently in http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-gcpm/#paged-presentations .
The draft currently has a placeholder section for this (and the
introduction and abstract mention it as well).
