Thanks for your answer,

In many other CMS, user can define the default page for the root domain
name (e.g. : http://mydomain.com)

This possibility is useful when we have a "change often" site. 
For example, if I have a site about car, I would like that in February my
index page show the new Opel article, in March the index page show the new
BMW, ... 

And I think it's not "cool" to have to copy/paste content each month or
rename articles to be "index.html". 

So just have to define the default page with a property could be useful.

I hope to be clear,
