Is there something I am either not understanding or missing? I screen = 1 page sounds sensible to me. For example, I have Star Trek Destiny #1 open on my Kobo. On the top, it will say something like 341/546 and on the bottom, it might say something like 7/14 (for chapter). This helps me understand progress relative to the book, much like the feel of a book in your hand. One look at the book in your hand gives you a pretty good idea of where you are in the book.

With epub page #s, it is harder to see where I am relative to the book. I know that 1 screen = 1 page is worthless for citing something or for discussing what is on a specific page as a specific text passage would not be on the same page across devices.

What you said about 1024 bytes being on one page makes sense though. Smaller fonts, line spacing, and smaller margins would result in less screen/page turns being on the same page #.
