Comment (by ryan):

 You can't turn off verbose page rules for permalink structures starting
 with %postname% or %category%.  Those are wildcards that match everything.
 Since they come before the page rules, the page rules are never reached.
 Permalink structures like yours are the reason we have to do verbose rules
 for pages.  We need those rules to avoid rewrite collisions.

 The /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ permalink structure avoids such
 collisions for all but one case.  Pages that have names that look like
 years (2007) will 404 because they collide with the %year% rule.  With
 verbose rules on, the page will win and the year will lose.
