           Summary: References shouldn't show up in the reflist unless
                    they've been unstripped
           Product: MediaWiki extensions

Suppose Template:X contained the string "{{#if:{{{1|}}}|1 was set|1 wasn't
set}}". If {{X|foo<ref>bar</ref>}} is used, the reference to bar shouldn't show
up in <references />, but it currently does (along with a broken backlink). The
far more common case of this happening is on the English Wikipedia, where
infobox labels contain a reference that should only appear if data for the
label exists. Hacks in lua have been written to avoid looking at parameters to
work around this problem. A much cleaner solution would be to only display
references in the reference list if they've been unstripped during the page's
parsing (or some equivalent way of checking that).
