Then perhaps an admin password should be set as a default option, or in
sample-config there should be an entry for the admin password, if not
for all the other default passwords as well, commented out?

I hope not for deletion of any normal page, since authors often have
to delete a page, but just have attr privileges in order to delete
the GroupAttribute page. But why should it be possible to delete this
special container page anyway, would it not be better to prevent any
deletion of it?
