;DanielLawson: I mean consistent across all page types, not just within a page type. Howto's are another matter altogether - I don't think they work very well at all within the wiki, because we either don't edit them, or we don't submit patches back upstream. They format badly, are hard to import, and even harder to update. We could probably get rid of them entirely. Personally, I think having to step some arbitrary number of characters into a page name just to find the actual content of the word is ridiculous. Having a suffix system serves to distinguish similar nodes with different content (Mozilla, MozillaMail, MozillaNotes, etc.). Using a prefix system means the *first* thing you see is type of the page, not the actual name of the page. Given that we don't have orphans, we either search for a page (in which case suffix or prefix is irrelevant), you use a category tag (in whcih case suffix or prefix is irrelevant), and they are linked from other pages, in which case a system which lets you actually find the real content of the page quickly, as opposed to having to look some unspecified distance (might be 5 letters or 15. Could be one WikiWord, could be three), seems far more useful. And if you have a bunch of pages in a list that share the same prefix, the different suffix just pops up because of alignment.
-I've included the on / of ones, because MozillaNotes scans nicely, NotesMozilla doesn't. It sounds like engrish.

And, Why did renaming the bookreviews piss you off? We've not decided on a solution, so I made the reviews consistent with the notes.
-;DanielLawson: on lowercasing everything, there is one problem that is harder to get round, although whether it occurs or not is another issue. FoobarPage and FooBarPage might well be very different pages, but if you ignore case they get merged together.
