Redundancy I guess, why have one more page layout than you need?

It's a good question, but I always wonder what the downside is to keeping left/right pages?

I'm just wondering if any of you have a good reason for keeping the traditional odd/even page formatting when your only deliverable is a pdf file. It doesn't facilitate online reading in any way, and even if people print out double sided it shouldn't matter, in my opinion.
We are working on a new page layout and I questioned the need for a different right and left page, my boss seemed uncertain so I would ideally like to go back with some resources/examples to back up my intuition.
