Pages are an artifact of a world that is soon to no longer exist; I'd say
this is one of the reasons why we're building an Internet in the first

The only case I think for page numbers is so that if you drop a printout,
you can easily reorder the pages without printing again.

In other words, I disagree thoroughly with all of the assertions that we
need page numbers in any of the electronic forms of documents.
