I could use this facility as well. In my case, the answer would
definitely be Main.XYZ. The only times anyone would be looking at other
groups was when the webmaster would be doing maintenance, and they can
make sure to use full URLs if need be.

Everyone else would be restricted to the Main group, and need to be able
to create the page Main.Site without needing to know that there is a
Site.Site page that it might conflict with.
