Too often readers will suspect that there was a printing error if
there isn't SOME content on the page.  Having headers and footers on
the page with no text between them only makes this type of person even
more prone to suspicion.  Putting an "Intentionally Blank" notice on
the page helps to reduce the number of calls to the Help Desk, if
nothing else.  If you don't like the paradox, you could simply reword
it.  "Intentionally Devoid of Relevant Content" or somesuch.
