I suspect this discussion happened on code4lib before the thread got
cross-posting to LLD XG where I first saw it.
There are undoubtedly a ton of diverse use cases, but that doesn't mean
APIs are the best solution. Here are some spitball possibilities for
"not just manifestations" and "we need page numbers".
I'm imagining an xyz ontology with startPage and endPage, but we can
surely create it if something doesn't already exist.

In terms of Linked Data, it should make sense to
treat citations as
text/plain variant representations of a FRBR Manifestation.
As Karen mentioned, many types of citation need more information than
just the manifestation. You also need pages numbers, etc.
