Ok, it should be fine as is. It would be helpful for you to document around the
lines where you do .text( page.extract ) and .html( $box.html() ) what the
expectations are, so that someone doesn't change those in the future and open
up an issue.

The title should be fine, due to the page naming rules. If the message contains
scripts, that would cause an issue, but we accept that risk in many places in
MediaWiki, so this isn't much different.

So in general, as if 2b021ef, this extension looks ok for security. Ori should
review it for performance next.
