This should just be a matter of copy the page directories over with
appropriate name transformations.

That should be a template-and-user-education problem, I'd think.  Can't
imagine how one would "force" such compliance unless there is a way to map
an ACL to a pattern of pages, i.e. completely bypass the "magic comments
in the page" method.

That sounds like much more trouble than it's worth.  Easier to just
manually subscribe the old wiki users to a pattern that matches all the
subpages of the "old" wiki,
