Yes, I looked at this, but at your suggestion tried it again.  I tried 
entering in some data through the user interface File > Document  
Setup... > Document Item Attributes.  What I entered then shows up in 
the XML as:

             <ItemAttribute Name="pagename" Type="string" 
Value="TestPageName 1" Parameter="Parameter1" Relationship="child" 
RelationshipTo="page" AutoAddTo="none"/>
             <ItemAttribute Name="" Type="none" Value="" Parameter="" 
Relationship="none" RelationshipTo="" AutoAddTo="none"/>

I was unable to find anything in the Scribus Help under the Scripter API 
showing how this structure could be accessed programmatically. Yes, if I 
could read and write to this, then DocItemAttributes might act as an 
ancillary database.  But with hundreds of pages, the accessibility has 
to be programmatic.  It would just be easier to place a text box (using 
a formulaic naming structure which includes a page number) on a layer 
that does not print.
