I think he should be able to do something with forcing an even number of

Yes, that is what I meant by "when there is a forced blank page triggered by the current or following page sequence".

The simple case of this is the classic THIS PAGE LEFT INTENTIONALLY BLANK.

But wouldn't that preclude ever triggering the "only" condition because there would never be only one page? There would always be two or more.
