Plone 3 - default index pages

The default index page used to be index_html, but it seems that Plone 3 has removed our ability to define the object id from the front-end, (which makes sense from a certain point of view). Plone 2 also offered a "create a default page" when you created a new folder object, which was nice. Now, Plone replaces the underscore with hyphens, meaning that index_html is given an id of "index-html", which is not included in the default_page list of site-properties. Furthermore, who wants to have a big index.html has a header for their index page? :P This causes the user to drop into the ZMI to rename the page object to "index_html, index.html, index.htm, or FrontPage". End-users don't want this...
