In reality, pages do not equal years.

On your 20th birthday, you have lived for twenty years. That day begins your
21st year (just as the day of your birth begins your first year). Likewise,
January 1, 2000 began the 21st century. Get used to it.

So, because the Gregorians erred and forgot to start with zero we should care?
I don't think so.
