Hello,

I attended the Houdini F2F.

I think the idea of "break record", mentioned by Rossen in the F2F, could be used for implementing such kind of search.
See IRC log: http://logs.csswg.org/irc.w3.org/houdini/2015-02-06/#e516631
It was only briefly mentioned in the discussion and I am not sure if it is in the scope of the Fragment Tree API, though.

By the way, I wrote a brief report on Houdini (and CSSWG) F2F in Japanese.
You can read it using Google Translate for now.
I can translate it into English later if necessary.

I would expect that 'Fragment Tree' is the crucial one for us here, returning information on pages, ie, one could find out(?) where the page boundaries are. However, will that API also allow for some sort of a fast search which, I presume, would be necessary (e.g., to answer to the question 'on which page is this image')? Do we know more?
