Hi Florian,

So do I understand the question right that you want to keep track of the
envisioned number of pages regardless the actual number whether it be a
digital or physical format? In FRBR 2.4 there is the property on F3 which
is CLP57 should have number of parts. Could work if you are using FRBR 2.4
but you wouldn't be able to specify that the parts are of type page, which
I guess is what you are after.

In CRMSoc we are working on this notion of Activity Plan and related idea
of an 'Event Trigger Template' which has a bunch of modal properties of
what a thing ought to be. This idea could be extended to an 'Object Trigger
Template' in principle although none of that is officially in the standard
to this point.

The question is definitely around the foreseeing and the fact that the
things that can be foreseen with extant properties are limited. You might
want to check out the discussions around the Activity Plan though for
inspiration on extension.
