the question seams to be if its needed for access the page or to
display a title. For example, in the case of a glossary the use of
pagenames would allow to reference with a common wikilink
[[Glossary.PWM]] directly to the entry in the form. So far I
funderstand, this wouldnt be possible with the above solution.
