If the CLI can't crawl to it via links, how would a user ever get to it?  Site
menus normally link to everything anyway.  The only case would be a "hidden"
page with no links to it that users access with a link from an external page (or
email, or bookmark) in which case we just feed that page to the CLI in the
configuration file.
