Not a good idea for the reason you've stated.  We don't really have "page 
boundaries" as an enforced concept, since a buffer is not a piece of paper.  
The only thing that happens is window-wise "paging" with tab, but the buffer 
can still be used line by line.  Think of someone scrolling with the mouse 
scroll wheel.

So, is it worth the effort?

It introduces more paging.
