A while ago, I raised some concerns about how overflow, overflow-style,  
overflow-x and overflow-y work, in particular when considering which of  
these should be used to introduce page generation on overflow and box  
generation on overflow.

As we now have a spec talking about, and extending, overflow, I think this  
discussion is worth having.

With regards to the publication of the spec as first public working draft,  
I would like to have an issue marked somewhere in the spec about this.  
Something like:

"There are discussions [link to my mail] about how overflow,  
overflow-style, overflow-x and overflow-y should work and interact with  
each other. Until consensus on this topic is reached, it is not completely  
clear which of these should be used for paged-x | paged-y |  
paged-x-controls | paged-y-controls | fragments"

It kind of overlaps with issue 7 and 19, but I would appreciate having it  
spelled out explicitly, so that we don't forget to have this discussion,  
which I believe is worth having.

Other than this, all the issues I can currently think of are already  
captured in the spec, so I am in favor of publishing.
