[Webcom] Standards for FOSS4G page naming on wiki

Does anyone care about whether or not there
should be a "standard" for how 'FOSS4G pages'
on the wiki are named?

For example:

For 2007, most pages use "FOSS4G2007" whereas
for 2009, all pages so far use "FOSS4G 2009".
In other words, aside from uppercase vs mixed
or lower case, some pages use a space after
"FOSS4G" and some don't.

Where this becomes an issue is with wiki searches.
If you search for 'foss4g 2007 lessons learned',
the existing page doesn't come up in the search
results, but 'foss4g2007 lessons learned' will
find that page.
