Is this a place to vent at all? It's true that no one seems to have
implemented this, but how great it would be if they did. Maybe this is the
"cart before the horse" issue. Leave the rules in and eventually, just
maybe, the browsers might start making use of them.

I am often stymied by not being able to properly format and print out
reports from our online app that we have developed. I either have to resort
to PDF's (which have their own issues), or to hoping a
"page-break-before:always" is good enough. In some cases a landscape page
would be ideal, yet I can't force printing in landscape and the tricks to
work around this aren't acceptable for our purposes.

Being able to actually *USE* all of the @page rules (headers, footers,
margins, orientation, etc) would be wonderful. Maybe someday...
