I just used the "nested subpage" feature to move a couple of API
interfaces to a new /apis/css-regions API listing page, and ran across
a few tempate-related issues. Please let me know if these are known
problems; otherwise I'll file bug reports.

* There was a significant delay in moving the subpages, which threw me
  off a bit. I'd suggest a note in the "move page" template about any
  expected latency.

* The apis/css-regions page's "list subpages" option dumps a raw list
  of links not only to each interface, but to each interface's
  members.  Ideal in this context would be a table of interfaces,
  featuring Name/Summary info generated from each subpage.

* As a result of the move, the page for each interface lost the tables
  referencing property/method/event subpages. That's because under
  "Basic property configuration" for each member, the "Applies to API
  object" field that defines the member's parent reflects the old
  location. Can the "move" operation be modified to account for this?

Thanks,
