 True, but to shut numeric page slugs out isn't a solution either. This
 change broke our site because we have a lot of pages with numeric slugs
 representing postal codes. These pages are also grandchildren, so there's
 no way they interfere with our /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/
 permalink structure.
