No, the problem is, that languages do not use the same amount of
words for the same contents of the text.

So the paragraphs should be related, so that the reader has
all related text in a good readble way.
If the paragraphs are not of same length, this could confude
the reader, even if pages are related (and they are only at
related at begin of the pages.)
