The url encoding is done automatically by pywikibot when requesting Page.permalink(). I guess there is also some sense in keeping the urlencode for those still using antiquated browsers.
Apart from storage the only place where this causes an issue is in the html output.
The decode should be an easy fix and I might use it as a first task for a dev who is starting out on php.
