To be fair, Prime Pages' prime (pardon the pun) purpose is to act as a repository of top primes. It is always a good idea to "normalize" the expression of a prime to a standard form so that you don't end up with multiple representations of the same prime.

The secondary purpose of classifying the primes is achieved thru the archival tags. IMO, these policies are entirely appropriate for a catalog such as this.

I can see why seeing the original "non-normalized" representation might be useful, but I just don't think it is prime page's responsibility.
