I can anticipate a lot of problems, none of them pleasant.  You *can*  
modify it, you just need to compile it yourself, then.

No, that's by design.  I'd like to keep the check in a single place  
only.  PageManager does not, nor should it, care about the allowed  
names - it just stores whatever is shoved at it and manages it the  
best it can.  Any checks on validity should be done at higher level;  
PageManager nor the Providers are agnostic to the format of the data  
they manage.
