Strongly agree with @frivoal, `@page::top-center` might be slightly more consistent but it doesn't seem to fix a problem or add anything new. There are an existing body of users, tools and documentation describing the current syntax, introducing a rival syntax will confuse things. It's not like we're creating hundreds of page styles per document.

Strongly against the make-like-a-grid suggestion - for the same reasons as above, and also because `@page::grid-area(2/1/-2/2)` is a big leap backwards in legibility. I'm all for boosting adoption, but it's not the syntax or layout model that's preventing it.
