Thus this should be part of the page controller, right?

Again, please separate routing and "speaking" URLs. The core should support 
the first and later add the second or allow custom implementations for the 

What needs to be done with renamed or "moved" records really depends on your 
application logic.
Although pages have a special role inside TYPO3 CMS, I suggest to go for a 
more generic implementation and only implement special features for pages if 
really necessary. If implemented properly, speaking URLs do not have 
problems with renames, because the id is given in the URL. Using only title 
to id translation is a really bad idea, because it makes it impossible to 
have the same page title multiple times in the same level or to recreate a 
page with the same name while moving the old page to an archive.
