Although, while the wiki is still so new, it's unlikely that there are
already links to it so there shouldn't be any harm in moving pages
created before there was a clear naming policy established.
Furthermore, I think that pages that were initially created by mistake
or with misspellings (e.g., "Perforamnce") are fair game for deletion.
