Namespaces and Naming Conventions
Although sub-pages appear sexy due to their "bread-crumbs", their use is discouraged for technical reasons. The main problem is that it ties organization to subpage-titles, the "IDs" of pages. For instance, if there is a need to change the organization (and this happens more often since it is a less versatile one-to-many schema instead of a many-to-many one, like categories are), the operation is harder, since page-moves invalidate existing wikilinks (unless you leave behind redirect-subpages) and fiddles with templates using magics.
Subpages is an afterthought that inter-operates badly with many plugins and other functionality, including categories and page-moves, and gives a hard-time to template-writers when using magic with namespaces. That is why, apart from specific uses (user-pages, archives and template-docs), Wikipedia has kept disabled their use within the main namespace. It is particularly discouraged their use for hierarchical grouping of pages related to some matter, eg. MoM - use Categories for that.
At the time of writing this, there are more than 150 articles (!) in the wiki. Navigation becomes somewhat difficult if you don't already know the name of the article you are looking for: the search function doesn't cover every use case, and looking for something in Special:AllPages isn't very fast or easy :P
You can see all used categories in Special:Categories. I tried to figure out what each category is used for. Here is a short description for each category:

If you find a mistake, or in case you introduce a new category, please update the table above. Thanks!
The next table demonstrates some special templates and the cases where they should be used.
|Template:Incomplete||For stuff that are incomplete and need more work/additions.|
|Template:Uncategorized||For stuff that are uncategorized. That is, they don't belong to a category.|
|Template:Outdated||For stuff that are outdated. That is, they contain information that is no longer valid.|
