The majority of sites I see (and design) usually provide a navigation menu containing links to just a small number of pages within the site. Therefore it would be nice if the "Show in navigation" option (when creating a page) defaulted to No - or at least make the default value a user preference. I realise that this option can be changed later if the user accidentally leaves it on "Yes" - this is more of a convenience feature I guess!
Also, it might be a useful timesaver when creating a page if the user was first prompted for the Title, then the Page name is automatically populated from this (e.g. by stripping spaces and special chars). Similarly the Menu label could also be automatically populated from the Title. This is a technique I've seen in other CMS systems.
