this discussion don't seems (to me) very factual. much "I
don't like", with little reasons.

I use extensively sub pages as soon as an article begin to
be too big to be reasonable to have in one page or to write
courses or big howtos.

I don't give any category to sub-pages, only to the main
one, like that one.
