How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Implement the overflow media features from MQ4

The overflow-block and overflow-inline media queries from Media queries level 4 let people tell apart media that paginate vs media that scroll or media that clip using media features instead of media types.

That way, you can do

@media (overflow-block: paged) {
/* do something smart for pagination */
}

and that will do the right thing when printing AND in ebook readers that paginate instead of scrolling, instead of

@media print {
/* do something smart for pagination */
}

which would work on print but fail in ebook readers.

The specification is over here:
