SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns for Wiki Pages Form

Would like to enable Cascading Dropdowns functionality for metadata I am capturing on a SharePoint wiki site.

Any ideas on how to put the CreateWebPage.aspx into edit mode (like the toolpaneview-2 trick for newform.aspx)?  And even if I can, will SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns work?

Editing a page (editform.aspx) seems to be the same as a list.

I doubt that the markup will be the same on the Wiki page CreateWebPage.aspx as it is in a form, so odds are the SPCascadeDropdowns won't work. I'll be interested to hear where you go with this!

I added it to the EditForm for the wiki page, and it works great.  Unfortunately, the CreateWebPage is where it would find the most usefulness.

I cannot find anything online on how to force that page into edit mode, as it appears to reside outside the list in the _layouts realm.

Edit form lives: /sites/etwiki/Wiki%20Pages/Forms/EditForm.aspx?ID=2

Create form: /sites/etwiki/_layouts/CreateWebPage.aspx?List=%7BC298E5A9%2DA899%2D4840%2DB12B%2DBB6BF7EBCB0E%7D
