Yes.  Example: (a multi-page wizard that uses Javascript to move from page
to page):

page {visibility:hidden;}
page.current-page {visibility:visible;}

<page id="1" class="current-page">...</page>
<page id="2">...</page>
<page id="3">...</page>

Are you making a counterpoint?  It seems that your point is valid but is not
an argument against <page>, or did I miss something?
