Pseudo-hierarchy in site tree
Sites with many (e.g. hundreds) of pages at the same level in the hierarchy become extremely difficult to manage.
SilverStripe should allow the creation of "management-only" page types which do not appear in the public site navigation, in order to improve manageability of large sites.
By means of one example, an online magazine might have a page for each issue; creating a pseudo-page for (e.g.) "year" which does NOT become part of the public navigation would help manage the site by better organizing the site tree.

this is a great idea. for blog posts these could be by year-month holder.... That would be amazing!
Wouldn't this be handled by having issues holder, that takes parameters like year or category in the url to create the page?
