Inheritance is defined over elements in the element tree.  If @page or
the @margin rules inherit from an element, or vice versa, then they're
in the element tree as well.  Like I said, at that point the
page/margin boxes effectively become pseudo-elements that just have a
weird at-rule-based syntax for legacy reasons.

Where they go in the tree is ???.
