The proposal notes that if leaf and page are defined by pagination, there are going to be situations when you will need to refer to, e.g., 12 unnumbered <pages? leaves?>. The RDA examples under 188.8.131.52.1 freely use "unnumbered pages" and "unnumbered leaves," which implies a distinction not based on pagination but (I'm guessing) printing. I don't think this has yet been addressed in the thread.

For what it's worth--and in contradiction my earlier post--OED defines "folio" [A.I.1.] as, "A leaf of paper, parchment, etc. (either loose as one of a series, or in a bound volume) which is numbered only on the front", not "A leaf of paper ... that has text only on the front." (http://www.oed.com/view/Entry/72529 subs. req.)
Not that catalogers have to stick to the dictionary, even such a fine dictionary as the OED. But I found it interesting.
