What I'm saying is that you can, as a first step, look at the migration
code and implement (let's call it so) page moving in a similar way. That
does not mean that you'd have to *always* move all the pages, like a
migration does, you well can move only one page, or a bunch of them.

It's the mechanism for implementing that you should take inspiration

A policy needs to be defined, sure. But we're not talking about that,
we're talking about, after you've decided what to do, how to do that.

Great! :-)
