I understand the historical bit; it is the reason for the Again in the 
subject line.

But page and story have no difference as installed.  So perhaps story 
should be installed with no comments specified.  If it were there would 
at least be a difference between the two.  Maybe even have the "Create 
a new revision" set for story.

> In 5.0, you can define your own type, or delete story if you don't like it.

That is too obvious.  I think page should be locked and not allowed to 
be deleted so that the end user doesn't screw himself.
