I wouldn't want specifications to demand placement in the "page info".
Browsers run in all sorts of environments with all sorts of
constraints, and "page info" may not always be available.

Specifications should describe the bits that cross the wire, and what
is presented on the cavas. Outside of that, specs shouldn't make
demands. IMHO.
