Yes, if you look at the Intermediate Format XML you will see that there
are 2 attributes on the xep:page element that relate to the page number;
page-number and page-id. The page-number must be a numeric value and
kept in consecutive order, within the XML file. The page-id is the
description of the page that will appear in the PDF or PS once the IF
XML is rendered. So you need to parse the XML and change the page-id.
