@elf-pavlik good points, and very good question for re-framing the 
discussion!

It's sort of what I was after when I was referring to Pages "merely" 
as Collections with some siblings and a position among them--such that
 "next" and "previous" could be used for finding the related siblings.

In [LDP paging](http://www.w3.org/TR/ldp-paging/) the relationships 
are a bit clearer (maybe). In that case, a "page" has a greater than /
 less than relationship with other pages, but the items within it do 
not themselves have order--as `contains` is unordered. Instead, you're
 supposed to provide additional ordering constructs specific to you're
 domain:
> It is up to the domain model and server to determine the appropriate
 predicate to indicate the resource’s order within a page (or 
globally), and up to the client receiving this representation to use 
that order in whatever way is appropriate to meet its needs, for 
example to sort the data prior to presentation on a user interface.

@azaroth42 iirc, there was some reason we felt that non-in-page 
ordering done this way was insufficient and that knowing that position
 of the annotation within the wider collection--without the provision 
of additional statements was important...but I don't honestly recall 
what that was now. Maybe you do? :smile: 

Schema.org also lacks the notion of "pages" per se, and instead uses 
`ItemList` in which a `ListItem` can reference a `next` and `previous`
 sibling as well as it's `position` within the list--such that you 
could build a list of lists. :turtle:'s all the way down. :smile_cat:
