I think what the program has to know is in what section do you add a 
page. In the case you're giving, the new page can be numbered either vi 
or 1. One section has now 6 pages. Which one is up to the user.

Correct in my view.
and the 3rd be from 11-15?
Yes again.
> the 2nd remain at 5-9 and the 3rd become 10-15?
I think this can be unexpected.

What's added to a section remains into and affects that section only.

Curious to see what others think.
