Sorry, rules like that sound soo bureaucratic. Think positive !
Proposed wiki policy on Index pages:
Pages that are list of links on topic X should be named "Index of pages on X"
Before creating an Index page, please read:
and consider the comparative advantage of using a Category instead.
An index page is only justified if it gives value added to the reader by
-- Making a thematic selection of quality links within and/or outside the Wiki
-- Providing a well thought out logical organization that makes it easy to
-- Offering a good formatting consistent with the above goal
Indexes should be not be painful to maintain. Comprehensive lists of pages
cannot be kept up to date and are better made automatically using categories.
