v-python has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-page-floats] should intersect with [css-page] ==
I've been trying to figure out how to have different styles on left-hand and right-hand pages of paged media. It seems that css-page only defines margins and gutter and crop marks and such, and while it supports page numbering, it doesn't seem to affect page formatting.  Left-hand and right-hand pages want to be different because of the way books are bound. Floats are the first issue that came to my attention in this regard, although there may be others.  I applaud the extension of floating to the vertical as well as horizontal direction, but the horizontal direction still doesn't seem to have the ability to put float a block left if it is on a left-hand page and right if it is on a right-hand page, or vice-versa. Many printed books use such a style, but as far as I can tell, in the latest drafts there is not yet a method to implement such a style.
