I think it makes sense. The main issue is that we actually don't have a great way to re-use citations with a page cited in ve in general.

So if we prompt someone to do this, there will be more cases where someone wants to re-use a citation, but it has a page number cited, and they may re-use the citation even though it's citing a different page number.

But I don't think it should stop us from doing it.

Actually is there a way to offer a similar context in the re-use tab?

Yes, we should. The added complication would be that if you added/changed the page number we would have to clone the citation, which ties it to some of the stuff @matmarex has been thinking about.
