Any name will do.

I'm curious -- does it matter? Why make a distinction between "blog
pages" and "normal wiki pages"?

I'm not saying that's the normal case, but I don't see any reason
to say that an author *couldn't* do it that way. As an example,
I might want to have a "Blogs" group for all of the blog trails
("Blogs.Pm", "Blogs.Alice", "Blogs.Bob"), while the individual
blog entries can go into groups based on other criteria.

I'm thinking we allow both options; a blog trail can specify
the header/footer for the blog, but if not specified in the trail
then the blog entry receives the site default settings.
