Additionally I believe this is by design so that action=edit urls on wiki that
are configured like Wikipedia can be made to always have /w/index.php style
urls so they can be blanket blocked by robots.txt

/wiki/Article?action=edit can't adequately be covered in robots.txt and while
noindex is on the page itself it's much better if search engines can be
prevented from even waisting bandwidth by loading urls they are just going to
get a noindex on.

So you'll either have to use $wgActionPaths or start a bug asking for some sort
of $wgShortActions array which can be loaded with an explicit list of actions
that should take the /wiki/Article?action= form instead of the default
index.php?title=&action= form.
