I suggest we change the definition in the Guidelines. The word "break" implies, 
and the text makes explicit, that a <pb> comes between one page and another and 
thus cannot come at the beginning of the document -- which, I think we all 
agree, logically it must. Ditto the other b's. And <handShift>, come to think 
of it.
