Do you propose this as an upstream task for Facebook? Or do you want Wikimedia to intercept edit links that include a Facebook HTTP referer and change them from action=edit to veaction=edit?

I think you need to file a feature request on Facebook. I'm not sure about where you'd do it though.

Not really. It's not a redlink. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=San_Pedro_de_Macor%C3%ADs&action=edit There's an "Edit on Wikipedia" link while logged in.
