The editor should not allow [//www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=VisualEditor%3ATest&diff=552858&oldid=552851 links to invalid titles].

Not sure if new inspector blocks this?

Mass-moving items into VisualEditor product

Mass-move out of "General" to init.

Standardise title.

Looks like a job for mw.Title in core.

It needs better validation. If static validation is not 100% waterproof we could built in a "extra sure" mode in mw.Title that makes an API request.

Fixed in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/23373 similarly to the way wikiEditor checks for invalid page titles

Would be better handled in mw.Title.

Fixed again. Sorry, everyone. Will be deployed to MW.org tomorrow, and we'll get it deployed more widely after testing.
