We discussed css3-page at the last f2f meeting, and the Working Group 
agrees that we want to do much more than is possible with the current draft.

However this draft has been around and kind of stable for a long time, 
so the plan is to publish css3-page Soon® without much more features 
than it currently has, and start in parallel with css3-page.


The GCPM module has some ideas (as Håkon mentioned), and Regions could 
also be useful.
