Why is that? If it's because you want some content *following* the page-break to be entirely presented on a sequence of pages, wouldn't it be more convenient to have a grouping element? I'm only asking because, while I never found myself wishing for such a thing, more than one coworker has approached me with questions about pagebreaks. Personally, I find the 'grouping' approach to much more naturally follow the hierarchical structure of the document. It also seems like a good formatting tool might be able to perform much more optimal layout, with grouping information, than with explicit page-breaks. There's also nothing to say that these grouping elements can't be nested. ...however, perhaps you just want top-level sections to start a new page, for example. If that's the case, you can already do that.
