I agree. As confusing as it is that some actions are special pages and other
actions are WikiPage Actions, at least we don't have one redirecting to the
other.

I don't think just adding these redirects will achieve any gain other than it
being slightly easier to type in wikitext. As for external links, urls should
be stable enough. There's already been talk about phasing out interwiki
prefixes in favour of external links (something I would support).

True, but I think if we're spending any more time on this, let's spend it on
that instead.

I think we should have something like ?editor, which would default based on
preference. So linking to action=edit would show the default editor for you.
And editor=visualeditor, editor=wikieditor or editor=classic would show one of
VisualEditor HTML editor, WikiEditor wikitext editor or classic toolbar
wikitext editor respectively. And most links should link to action=edit without
an editor parameter, thus showing whatever the canonical default is for the
current user or wiki.
