Filenames are unstable on Commons. Switch to MID datatype on P18 and other properties?
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT

Description

Filenames are not a good IRI see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T277665#6931281
There is also possibly encoding issues

@Multichill proposed to use MID instead of filenames here: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T258776#6874936

What do we need to make this a reality? A new datatype?

We would need to add the ability to use page/M-id to Special:FilePath (Special:Redirect).
