According to what you have written in your example, you will need to create 
four page geometries, two "left" geometries (one for the first page and one 
for others), and two "right" geometries (one for the first page and one for 
the others), and then use two tests in the first two:

In pseudo-FO:

     <conditional page-position="first" odd-or-even="odd" ...>
     <conditional page-position="first" odd-or-even="even" ...>
     <conditional odd-or-even="odd" ...>
     <conditional odd-or-even="even" ...>

The processor walks through conditional references in document order 
looking for the first match of all three possible conditions: order, 
parity, blankness.

I hope this helps.
