Yes, it would be great to be able to use that function for other
purposes, as well. Perhaps there could be a default setting for the
designated page that could be overridden by the markup.
For example, the default designated page could be based on the user's
profile page with a default ending, e.g. Fred-Watchlist.
If the markup allows authors to override the default, it would be good
to allow authors to specify the new page by reference to the author's
profile page. Presumably, that could be done by simply specifying the
new page using a variable, for example Profile.($Author)-NewPage
