I've added this to Section 3:

"In CSS 2.1 a viewport is a feature of a user agent for continuous media  
and used to establish the initial containing block for continuous media.  
For paged media, the initial containing block is based on the page area.  
The page area can be set through @page rules. Hence, @viewport applies to  
continuous media, and @page to paged media, and they will not interact or  

@Bert: is this an acceptable resolution for your issue "ISSUE 3  Bert:  
What's interactions of @viewport and @page".
