It usually is okay. As long as no links are broken because of the
page change. The pageindex cache will be not up-to-date if you do FTP

The last method is obviously the better one, avoiding any possible
implications on the pageindex cache.

Renaming the page through  a Pmwiki recipe is also better than the
FTP renaming.

But I find file renaming quite adequate most of the times.
