Nice, but no coconut. What does 'correct', 'proper' mean
The last two are system dependent (installed fonts?) so inapproprite?

I guess identical line breaks is back to typesetting again?
Too close to pixel perfect for me (tell me if I'm wrong).
Identical pagination probably depends on line breaks ultimately
(tell me if I'm wrong), so -1

So this definition, whilst better (loosely named layout perfect in the past)
is still -1 from me.

I'd like something like this, but not if we can't define it.

Iff a rendition of the spec gives enough information to determine where the page breaks should lie then we should test for it. If not (and I don't think it will, and in a way hope it never does) then we cannot, and should not penalise applications for this with our tests (have to be careful with the acid test(s) for example, which are increasingly likely to be bite-sized chunks of testing, say a single table, rather than a complex page layout).
