    You have two requirements in your example unfulfilled by XSL-FO 1.0:

       (1) there is no page condition that would test true for "the second last
           page in a page sequence" regardless of whether the last page is blank
           or not; and

       (2) there is no formatting object that would give you on any given page
           the page number of the next page.
