But I too, have always wondered why this calling a blank page a blank page
convention exists... the only time i've ever seen it is in our internal
engineering white papers, and I can't figure out what purpose it serves.

So indeed, why do it? I mean, how likely is it that somebody is going to get
to a blank page and go: "WHOA! What's this? Someone must have accidentally
deleted all the text and pictures that should be on this page! I can see
that there are 50 more pages after this one, but I guess this is actually
the end of document! Help! What do i do?"

Is it just some outdated convention linked to obsolete technology that no
longer has any relevance?
