I haven't looked at the Add Page dialog of the 1.3 series, yet, so I do
not know how it differs from 1.2x. However, the 1.2 series includes
'Insert Before...' and 'Insert After...' logic already. Simply extending
the functionality of the existing logic gives reasonable defaults.

If selected Insert After... (using your example, page 4), append to
section one, continuing page numbering to vi.

If selected Insert Before... (page 5), then prepend to second section,
shifting page numbering so that the new page 5 is labeled '5' and
section continues through 10.

In short: Yes.

Somewhere down the line, options for changing these defaults probably
should go into doc preferences, somewhere.
