 Upgrading this to a bug.

 As per [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/src/wp-
 includes/post.php post.php]:

 Page slugs must be unique within their own trees. Pages are in a separate
 namespace than posts so page slugs are allowed to overlap post slugs.

 It's fair to say that media, tags, custom post types, link categories,
 posts and pages are different "trees".

 I've upgraded this to 'major' severity due to the effect it can have on
 URL structure, which could potentially have a detrimental effect to a site
 if a slug points to the wrong place.

 I've explored the 'tests' looking for the word 'slug', yet this yields no
 results, therefore the lack of unit test is not one created by this issue
 and therefore should not be addressed by this issue.
