Well, I put the content under Advocacy_Todo because that page already
existed (albeit empty) and it seemed a logical naming, consistent with
our approach elsewhere on the wiki.

We *could* use subpages for Advocacy, sure.  But
 a) I don't know all the implications of using subpages versus the
standard scheme.
 b) We don't do that anywhere else in the wiki, so it's kinda out of left field.
 c) Wikipedia specifically disallows the use of subpages in the main
namespace, because trying to organise things into a topical hierarchy
proved counterproductive.  I'm not suggesting we have to do whatever
Wikipedia does, but they are the organisation with the most field
experience using mediawiki, so it might be useful to take advantage of
their lessons learned.

Personally I'd be more inclined to just put all of the
Advocacy-related pages into Category:Advocacy.

Cheers,
BJ
