You're quite right, if they don't have admin rights on that page they
won't be able to save it - even if they start with a template that says
"All:admin".  Since the page doesn't yet exist, it will use default

This feature seems to be requested occasionally; should a page inherit
rights from the template used to create it?

You may be able to use a +Known:admin right in the acl_rights_before or
Known:admin in acl_rights_after to do something like this (caveat
emptor: I don't know if that is sensible).  Or you could pre-create a
bunch of pages that they are allowed to edit, admin and rename.
