Bug ID: 61558
           Summary: VisualEditor:  ISBN link labels (from magic words) can
                    be changed, but not the underlying links
           Product: VisualEditor
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General

Change an ISBN.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a page with a pre-existing ISBN number (using the magic word).

2. Click in the link and open the link inspector.

3. Correct the numbers in the ISBN.

4. Close the link inspector.

Actual Results:  
The link label does not change.  This is not surprising, given VisualEditor's
approach to links, but it is sometimes unfortunate; see

However, the link itself does not change, and if you have done nothing else, it
is not possible to save the page, because you have supposedly made no changes.

Expected Results:  
Ideal behavior:

Changing "ISBN 1234567890" to "ISBN 1234567891" simply updates the plain
wikitext magic word.

Possibly acceptable behavior:

Changing "ISBN 1234567890" to "ISBN 1234567891" updates the link to
[[Special:BookSources/1234567891|ISBN 1234567891]].

Reproducible: Always
