The editor should not allow [// 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 similarly to the way wikiEditor checks for invalid page titles

Would be better handled in mw.Title.
