Making a child, where is not allowed

I have a class

class BlogPost extends Page {
static $allowed_children = "none";
static $default_parent = "blog";

I think it should not be possible to make a child of "BlogPost" anyhow, because of $allowed_children = "none". But it is.

In the CMS->SiteContent I click "Create" and choose "Page" from the list of possible new pages. But I do not click "Go" button. Then I choose a page of my BlogPost class. Then I click "Go" button near "create", i.e. in the upper left corner. The new page is created as a child of the "BlogPost". Or at least it is shown as a child of "BlogPost" in the tree in CMS (even after browser reload).

Sadly, allowed_children doesn't exist. The way the system was built it was hard to add allowed_children.

"Sadly, allowed_children doesn't exist."
I guess we should get Andy to update tutorial 2 then because this is from tutorial 2..

static $allowed_children = array('ArticlePage');

Is there plans to add this later? Otherwise we should probably remove it from the source?

I think this is a Very important Feature.

If you create a Holder page for Products for example, you need only product pages to be children of these holder.

I agree...

Can we not do a check on creating a new page-type on a current page, that is has the page-type you're trying to create in the static $allowed_children = array() ?
