That's basically the same problem: certainly, it's primarily an accessibility issue, but it's also true for anyone who isn't doing a large desktop office suite: text-based applications, server-side processing, etc. It's basically really costly to figure out which content is on which page, and frankly you'd probably come to different answers than the original application anyway, so your page 6 might be their page 5.

This is the definitive untestable para in the spec (para 9 of section 2.3.1).
There are a few testable phrases, but the spirit is 'do as you want,
