You could colour white the page number variable on the right master page, so 
it is included in the count but not displayed.

Subject: Sequential page numbers on alternate pages

> Hello,
> I have been asked to help out on a funny problem. A client is looking for 
> a better way to publish bilingual files in which the source language is on 
> the left pages and the target language is on the right. Page numbers are 
> only on the left pages, but the sequence ignores the right pages. The left 
> pages are 1, 2, 3, etc., and the right pages aren't counted. The original 
> files are in QuarkXpress, and the page numbers are added by hand. I can do 
> with this with XML and XSL-FO (and even that isn't 100% automated), but 
> that isn't always an easy sell. FrameMaker would be an easier sell, if
