I just posted to the mediawiki-api list about this:

Skipping the intro:

> In talking to Sam this morning about this, a couple things became clear:
> 1.  This requires action=parse, which is already on the list of APIs

> 2.  While this move should be net-neutral in CPU load, it does shift

> How big of a problem is this?
