I don't understand "non-turnable pages"

How would this work? I presume the user would have to consent to the

I think this is a bug in (some?) existing reading systems

Could you go into more detail about this? Parts of CSS-Pages and GCPM are
really specific to print (such as trim marks). Much of CSS pages depends on
an unchanging viewport size, which in general isn't true for the web. EPUB
has had running heads before, but there was little interest in
implementation.
