I would prefer to keep to the subject in hand that is the team wiki.

I by no means want anything done by guesswork and never suggested that.
The 'FindPage' which allows searching by numerous methods i.e. word,
title and category etc. all make the wiki easier to navigate. I just
feel if a user placed their personal works on the wiki as sub pages it
would be easier for them and easier for anyone trying to clean and admin
the wiki content - I know this from my experiences over the last month.

One of the best methods for grouping related content on the wiki if
structured well is the categories; that if added to pages at creation
time become the glue that binds documents for a specific subject,
project or group together. If anyone would like assistance creating a
category, feel free to email me and I will only be too happy to assist.

I see the page and sub page structure as better IMO, others may not see
it that way, but it's up for discussion to whomever is interested.
