Change view to book view and the second page is shown as blank page. We have a lot of simliar bug reports, but it's the intended behaviour (but documentation could be improved)

Thanks for the explanation Dieter (and links to related bugs). I tried (and obviously failed) to find similar bugs before filing this one. After reading those bugs, I looked for documentation, but could not find any, though it was suggested in bug #126284, comment 8. Have you found any?
There was a change in the status bar between 6.3 and 7.0, but I still find it confusing. Seems strange to treat all "Insert Page Break, restart numbering" as though the intention was to print books.
