We currently have multiple help links set in Wikimedia config, which should be moved to their individual wikis to be configured.

T14306: Implement MediaWiki Help Repository (fetching Help: pages from MediaWiki.org or Meta, similar to file description pages from Commons)
That would be very problematic: redirect someone to an Help page on Mediawiki will give that person a global Help page. That global help page is for all wikis, including non-WMF wikis. Local pages also introduce habits and local rules to users.
Have a sort of shadow namespace (T14306) or a way to transclude parts of help pages from MW to local wikis would be a way to solve that issue. I definitely recommend to keep the system as it is now, with priority to local Help pages, while waiting for better.
