I only bring this up as its the second time I've heard this term in a week. Last week a Drupal guy asked me if plone was a page based CMS. This might be an marketing angle competitors use going forward.

When the 'Drupal guy' asked, it might have been more a matter of him
getting a feel for whether Plone is a 'real CMS' that handles structured
content types with custom metadata well, or is just more of a 'basic web
publishing' tool, as Wordpress at least started out as, and some other
tools continue to be (have a main 'Page' content type, folders, files,
images, but not really much in the way of custom types that each have
different properties beyond the typical Dublin Core fields (Title, Desc,
Subject, Creation/Eff/Eff dates, etc.)

That would have been my impression, anyhow. And coming from that angle,
IMHO, I don't think it's a real good marketing strategy for Plone to be
touted as 'page-based'. That would make it sound simple, yet less
capable to me (e.g., Wordpress, et al.)

Another possible interpretation might be a 'single-paged website' that handles navigation and everything else via ajax-calls, staying on the same URL.

actually, this 
"""
[START] as a page based CMS, 
[GROW] to *your* content types CMS
be [IMPRESS]ed by what you can get from Plone
""" 
is already the motor we have for plone.com as it is now..
make sense to you? :)
