It is non-normative: http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/about.html#media-applies

Something "visual" can be "paged" and/or "continuous":  
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/media.html#media-groups

break-* property definitions. (Multicol doesn't seem to be a duplicate of  
CSS 2.1 since the properties have different names.)
