Create a magic word to be used on English Wikipedia (and possibly elsewhere) to replace Wikidata short description in all of the places where the description is paired with English Wikipedia content, including but not limited to apps, search, and in Visual Editor's link module.

The model for this is the defaultsort magic word -- {{DEFAULTSORT:Big Sleep, The}} -- which is used in the wikitext on the article page to determine where the page title appears on category pages.

The new magic word should be {{SHORTDESC:1946 film by Howard Hawkes}}

RFC consensus acceptance criteria:

  1. "starting with blanks, and allowing them to be filled in manually and/or by bot"
  2. "Show no description where the magic word does not exist"
