So if in the future you introduce a meaningful (in that it has special 
semantics) identifier other than "auto" here, pages that use that as a 
page name break?

Is there a reason not to just use strings for page names and auto be an 
identifier?  That is:

page:  auto | <string>

That would be much more future-proof.
