If you're aiming for a "section edit" capability (e.g., like on 
WikiPedia), then this probably isn't the right way to go about it, 
as it'll make too many pages and too many includes.

If this is just a mechanism to do includes, then it's probably
better to make a custom markup:

    (:include-edit Page:)

which is translated into

    <:block>%rfloat% [[(Page?action=)edit]]
    (:include Page:)

and does what you want.
