origin:page.mw is not necessarily the best example, but HEAD^:page.mw
can exist in your local history and not on the wiki. Even HEAD:page.mw
can be interesting if you have uncommited changes. Not that it's
terribly useful to be able to preview it, but once you can deal with
local files, it should be easy enough to generalize it to any blob.
