I don’t know if these are use cases we should address in CSS, but:

If 'visibility' is consistent with what it does on elements, it would 
rather generate a page with nothing painted on it.

Not generating the page at all would be more like 'display: none'. Note 
however that we might still need to do the layout for the whole page 
content, in order to know where the next page starts.
