Mediawiever makes it harder to reach the permanent link (at least 1
extra click), it does not get rid of it. The problem you describe also
occurs for articles moved without redirect, that's why the oldid

I too believe that it's every site's responsibility to offer
permalinks and 3rd party services are risky, because out of both the
site's and reuser's control.
