Okay, how about this approach:  Let's leave page names as they are now, 
but when someone creates a new-page link using
[[global warming may cause tsunami]], the edit form pops up with

    (:title Global warming may cause tsunami:)

already entered in the textarea.  I.e., the (:title:) uses the case 
of the edit link but capitalizes the first letter.  The author can 
then easily see and modify the default title.  The page name would
still be GlobalWarmingMayCauseTsunami, which keeps it readable and
usable in urls, filenames, configfiles, etc.
