The problem in that case is, that there is no simple way to insert a paragraph
before the first one and setting a "break before" does not automatically insert
such paragraph. [Current workaround is to enter a table or section before,
change the table to text or remove the section and then insert the page break.]

For the missing feature of selecting different kind of objects and across
pages, I can image a solution via Navigator. So that you can select several
objects/images/frames in the Navigator even if they are far away in the
document, and delete them then with Del-key [or do some common styling e.g.
right align them]. Cut&Paste has the problem, that the paragraph or character
to which the objects were anchored, are not included in the Cut. The result
would be, that all objects would be anchored at the same paragraph on Paste, so
that the original relative position to each other is lost.
