The editor proposes that resolution for your issue, number 33, discussed
below is to extend the page-policy [1] property to apply not only to page
counters but to the resetting of the counter. Thus when the page-policy is
set to start to counter takes a value at the start of the page and is also
reset at the start of a page -- before the counter.  Similar actions occur
for first and last.
