Implement Adobe's CSS Exclusions proposal for more complex layouts like those used in print. This is still in flux, but Adobe has created a WebKit-based prototype found here: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/cssregions/
The exclusions proposal has been merged into the floats proposal; I'm against the lot of it.
Exclusions is back, please reopen.
Would you mind reopening, please?

Also, Apple showed this on WWDC, and Chrome has it, too. Some tests say Firefox has limited support, but that's mostly for an outdated spec, AFAICS, as the tests linked to in the URL (above) all failed in my Fx 25b.

I'd like to discuss Exclusions, and see why folks have been against it. Perhaps the spec needs a new approach. But the end result for Authors would be incredibly helpful. And would stop designers from demanding non-accessible websites are built in order to accomplish their graphic design ideas. NYTimes, MPR, many big editorial sites have broken a11y because they don't have a tool like Exclusions.
Turning this into a meta-issue for all the things that are covered by the CSS Exclusions Module Level 1 spec. Sebastian
