(I meant start in parallel with Paged Media **Level 4**, of course.)

Daniel Glazman is currently sketching out ideas for css4-page, which I 
believe will include a way to flow content from HTML elements into 
headers and footers, as in Julian’s proposal.

I suggest discussing this again when Daniel brings his proposal to the 
WG, but I still hope tho two models can be unified.
