[thelist] Search Engine and MIVA shopping cart filenames

Need some help with creating s.e. optimized filenames when locked into creating an ecommerce site using the MIVA shopping cart!

Will soon be setting this up for a new client. MIVA seems to have its own method of naming filenames. Does anyone know if I can change that to more search engine-friendly filenames and still comply with MIVA's rules & regs?

For example, another site constructed using MIVA displays this url for the Home page:

and this for the Catalog page:

and this for one of the Product pages:

As a last resort, I was thinking of creating a Site Map page listing all products (linking to their respective MIVA-named pages) but I don't even know if I'm allowed to put the Home and Site Map pages in the root directory.

Any MIVA-experienced help appreciated!
