Yes and no.

Yes: The default {page$:var} markup rule ("{$var}") only accepts as a 
page name Latin letters, digits, dots, slashes, minuses, and 
international characters. It will not change if you change $NamePattern 
or $GroupPattern.

No: You can always redefine this markup rule in config.php if you want 
to change it.

If the subpage is on a separate disk file it "should" work (redefine 
both $NamePatterns and the {$var} markup rule). If subpages are parts of 
a larger wiki page, it probably won't.
