I agree with you about the issue you are raising. In fact, it's the
only reason why I am holding back my plan to upgrade to the latest
version of Pier.
We use a slightly customised Pier to manage our intranet and it was
relatively easy to explain to the users that if they want to create a
link to a structure, they just have to put the title of the target.
The situation was not that smooth when we were using Plone and custom
CMS. Even after a while, a large portion of our user base still had
troubles to make the difference between the name of a structure and
its title when it came to create links. The consequence was that the
sites produced during that period contained a lot of endless pages
and very few links.
So far, we get a better balance between cross-referencing and page
size, thanks to the sheer simplicity of the way Pier manages its
links. I fear that we will lose this simplicity if we introduce back
the same concepts that didn't performed that well during our previous
