Could you provide images that can be submitted on wiki to see the
problem?For me, it is very hard to analyze the issue without image.

I see your point, it does ask why for one and not the other. I think
the reasonsing behind this was the film reel was very grey, so
thiswould be hard to distinguish between the page and film. It is
possible to use a page with just the film strip (photo negative style)
against the page.

I belive the page means "document" or "file" as opposed to it just
being the application. I suppose the only time one would see the
actual files is inside a file manager or browser box but I feel there
is still the need to show it is a file.
