Yes, I think that's correct.

I do not think anyone touches the web layout currently, so if you want
some improvement there, feel free to go ahead. :-)

The relevant classes are:

- SvxFmtBreakItem: the page break is a paragraph property, e.g. "page
  break before" is the pool item on the paragraph of this class, with
  SVX_BREAK_PAGE_BEFORE passed to the ctor.
- SwPageFrm: represents a Writer page in the Writer layout.

See sw/qa/extras/README on how you can inspect the current state of the
layout using F12 in debug mode.
