Well, it took only about 5 years but latest episodes being added to CU+ FINALLY shows the total number of episodes in a season! Eg S32/Ep6 of 26 - just like on normal CU. Just not sure why Carte Blance says 26 episodes - it used to be 52 in a season. But thank you!
So now I can start asking for the same info to also be added to the EPG (and subsequent recordings).
