I think this SC is about more than the placement of icons: the placement of 
navigation lists, search boxes and "small print" should also be 
predictable. A server-side technique for this SC is the use of templates.

I don't understand why using "page 2", "page 3" etc is considered a 
failure. What's wrong with informing the user about the number of the next 
page? What would be wrong with something like "page 3 of 10"? It seems 
useful to know how far you have progressed in a sequence of pages. (Even 
when the same icon is used, I don't understand why saying "page 2", "page 
3" instead of "next page" would be an accessibility problem. This is not 
the same as saying "next page" when the text in the icon says "page 2".)
