Another of MW's most powerful features (shared with all wikis AFAIK)  
is the ability to create new pages from links.  I've always felt that  
this was the real downfall of page-by-page security... users will  
unintentionally create unprotected pages.  But I think we've had this  
conversation before, months ago!
