If I enter a nonexistent group plus nonexistent pagename in the
browser address bar it opens the edit window on the new page.

I find that most satisfying.

To be able to type in SomeGroup/SomeName and get a link which when
clicked opens the new page in edit mode is for me one of the essential
easy and quick ways to create pages. I don't need nor want an
in-between state of PageNotFound with various options.
The less I see of PageNotfound the better.
Quick page creation is for me fundamental wiki nature.
