i'm not sure it is elegant but it works - at least to center the text

    \once \override Score.BarNumber #'break-visibility = #all-invisible
    \once \override Staff.StaffSymbol #'stencil = ##f
    \once \override Staff.Clef #'stencil = ##f
    s1 - \markup \column { \vspace #12 \fill-line { \null "This page
intentionally left blank." \null } }
    \bar ""
    \once \override Staff.BarLine #'stencil = ##f
    \once \override Staff.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f
    \once \override Staff.KeySignature #'stencil = ##f

if the music before and after is written in two scores this simplifies to:

\markup \column { \vspace #22 \fill-line {\null "this page" \null}}
\markup " "

i have no idea how to center the text vertically - is it possible?
another problem could be the page numbering…
