As an author, I’d rather put the page breaks where they make sense and be done with it.
While hinting is great for the first 80 %, there is no known way to infuse a formatter with *all* the considerations that are immediately obvious to a human observer.

I think it is important to be able to put in such tweaks at the draft stage as well — this is the first time a specification gets many new readers, and it is worth it making their work easier.
