Reminds me of T39843.
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/ThisIsATestEtcEtcEtc?debug=true&veaction=edit does not even finish loading. Meh.

GET  XHR https://www.mediawiki.org/api/rest_v1/page/html/ThisIsATestEtcEtcEtc [HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found 224ms]

And that's a 200 instead of a 404 when the page exists...
