Not with simple-page-sequence.

What would be possible is to have it the following way: Create a box-object
without indents, borders etc., then have the original content processed as
the box's content two times. Since the box object serves as a "logical" area
container, this would work theoretically.

Yet, I don't know wheter any backend supports such a construct.
(I just figured that out from the PDF backend I've written - this one does
it at least.)
