[xep-support] recto/verso vs odd/even

I sent this query to the XSL list and got no response. Is this really
missing in the XSL spec or am I missing something?
Maybe there's a way to do it with XEP, with some postprocessing perhaps.
Any advice is appreciated.

I'm trying to format a book using XSL-FO in which recto and verso pages
have different layouts. Basically mirror layouts with larger inside
margins for binding. The problem is that my page-sequence's have
initial-page-number=1 and force-page-count="no-force", we don't want
blank pages. In other words, whether a page is odd or even has nothing
to do with whether it is a front page or a back page in the book.
The book contains many small sections starting at page 1 but that can be
a front or back page. Naturally I'm mapping the sections to
page-sequences. However the conditional-page-master-reference has only
tests for odd-or-even based on the page number of the page-sequence as
stated by the spec. I haven't found anything for recto/verso (front/back).

Any way to achieve this with XSL-FO?
