We (AntennaHouse) implemented CSS3 Page with experimental features
including a bit of GCPM, and hope these specifications will be 
improved and stabilized. Also I am interested in the discussion of
the Paged Media Level 4 that I'll have to learn a lot.

For your information:
O'Reilly Media is building books with CSS3 Paged Media (using AntennaHouse).
"EPUB 3 Best Practices" http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920024897.do 
is an example.
There is an A List Apart article, "Building Books with CSS3" 
(by Nellie McKesson, O'Reilly Media, Inc.) 
and a presentation at the recent O'Reilly's event TOC 2013, 
"CSS3 (and HTML!) for Publishers" (Nellie McKesson)
