I'd like to propose that we remove this text from 13.3.5 Paged Media of CSS 2.1 on "Best page breaks"

 *   Avoid breaking inside a block that has a border.
 *   Avoid breaking inside a table.
 *   Avoid breaking inside a floated element
These are not realistic for the pages on the web today and not in line with what browsers do.
If authors really want the effect they can use the page-break-inside: avoid property.
