Well, I don't think this is "moving in that direction" since this is how 
click works since 0.x :). I still have some very old versions around, 
and also quite a few applications and even presentations that rely on 
this pattern :).

I wouldn't do that either :).
Another point of the <pages> element was also to separate "modules" of 
functionality, but without introducing a "module" tag in click.xml .

The idea of the "<page>" element was to use it *only* for the 
"exceptions" from the rule, the rule being specified in the "<pages>" 
element (e.g. automapping, autobinding, common package part, etc.), and 
not to be used on it's own, as click.xml should be not a "dependency 
injection" setting (as it looked for some users after the introduction 
of the Click Services) :).
