Sorry for the thread fork. Yes, "Add Page" could create a lot of unconnected
pages, but for many sites and purposes getting the content in the first
place is a much bigger challenge than finding people who can/will connect
new content into existing pages. Also, the new pages aren't completely
orphaned--they still appear in the RecentChanges and AllRecentChanges lists
so that someone can notice them and link them appropriately.
