Hi Xavier,

I didn't propose the solution with the shortcut so don't fix me at this 
point ;-) But you are free to use normal pages instead.

Normally I add Sysfolders as Storage for administrative elements. Even 
if there are stored content-elements or users I have a special folder 
where rights can be set either by elements or by directory.
Mixing up those folders with content-pages is an option and perhaps it 
makes sense in some cases but this concept is new to me because I 
strictly separated mentioned elements, in other words: sysfolders I use 
for elements that are independent from pagetree, for content or viewable 
pages that means it has to be included by other elements in active pagetree.

Best Regards
