This may solve the OP problem, but I am not sure. I have certainly come
across clients who wanted the blank pages to be omitted from the
document page count, i.e. so 2nd front side or 3rd physical page is
numbered page 2 if 1st reverse side was blank.

I realise there is no support in XSL-FO 1.0 for this, but with the
upcoming XSL-FO 2.0 workshop throught I would mention this usecase.
