That's not necessarily true. While some structures could be improved by
tweaking WP, some others are due to quirks in mod_rewrite. Check out
Ryan's two different plugins to get /category/ permalinks working on
quirky mod_rewrite implementations. Of course, there's nothing
preventing us from recommending default presets and improving the
WordPress code as well...

Pages are designating using `post_status` which can be 'publish',
'draft', 'private', 'static' or 'object' according to my database. We
