They're used in many places on the main wiki.
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeams is just one example (which I based
ours off), and possibly even one of the first to do it. Jono put a lot
of work in to that way back soon after he started, and it made it
waaaaaaaaaaay easier for people to tidy and build up the LoCo
knowledgebank. Hopefully it can help us achieve the same.

So is the Events page, and the WomenAchievers page, and probably others
that I didn't scrutinize :(
There's also a heck of a lot of stuff that isn't written down anywhere,
or lies in orphaned pages that need to be put in to the matrix
somewhere, somehow. Some pages have reached critical mass like /Home and
need to be chopped up to be useful again.
The reshuffle should make it less intimidating for people to dive in and
rectify all this stuff. Hopefully. First things first ;)
