It does works, many thanks, it was a  showstopper for me (because the 
whole Wiki structure depends of the answer), so now i'll start 
implementation of my site.

Is it possible to have some sort  of command like :

$WikiWordPagePathFmt = array('$Group.$1', [[GroupList]]); 

To be able to have the namespace covering the whole Wiki ?

Yes, it is clear that i want to use groups at a lower level than your 
initial intent.
But i think there is a need for some  data organisation , as shows the  
frequent request for subgroups, which seems a hot topic here.
In fact my Wiki being  small, i  wish  to use Groups as others  use 
SubGroups, which rises the problem of NameSpace.
