* &action=view is gone

* We are going to shorten UUIDs and make them alphadecimal ( gerrit 98995 and
gerrit 102626)
  ->
http://ee-flow.wmflabs.org/w/index.php?title=Sandbox&workflow=rnfimx8dabsyhl2v

* You can always replace /w/index.php?title=Something& with /wiki/Something? .
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Requests_for_comment/Clean_up_URLs is an RFC for
MediaWiki core to produce the latter
  -> http://ee-flow.wmflabs.org/wiki/Sandbox?workflow=rnfimx8dabsyhl2v

* Special:Flow/topic/rnfimx8dabsyhl2v remains a possibility. This is the URL
that works as a wikitext link in square brackets without messing around with
{{fullurl:}} and templates. It could allow, but not require, the Flow board as
well. And we're not sure how to present alternate link formats to the user for
easy copying, see
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Flow/Functional_Specifications/Boards_and_Topics#Permalink>
  -> http://ee-flow.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:Flow/topic/rnfimx8dabsyhl2v

* A JavaScript front-end that recognizes fragments is possible, but the link
and wikitext [[Sandbox#topic-rnfimx8dabsyhl2v]] would not work in no-JavaScript
browsers.

Replacing the UUID altogether with "name-of-topic" would require a cross-wiki
UUID shortener table.
