Summary: Add option for additional text in tooltip on mouseover
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: wikimedia-deployment
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Page rendering

The current tooltip on mouseover shows the name of the link, but there would be
many instances when a short description would be helpful as well, like a one
sentance summary of a linked article, so that the user doesn't have to go to
the linked article in order to understand what it is.

I envisage that the short description is written on the page being linked to
(the target), and when the link is created on the 'current' page (eg
[[target|alias]] a flag can indicate if the description should show in the
mouseover, eg [[target|alias|hoverdesc]]
