Just a note that this still causes lots of broken links (when moving translatable pages, via bug 60920), see e.g. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meta:Babel#Moving_Programs:Evaluation_portal .

Yes, IMHO this is not a feature request but a proper bug, per https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_delete_redirects

Testme: Special:MyLanguage behaviour when target is a redirect.

Came across this bug (feature request?) with the renaming of "Audiences" back to "Product" (see revision note here: https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Wikimedia_Product/New_Content_Program_Metrics_Reports&oldid=3286950; I added the redirect after encountering this)

Thanks to T168591, non-translatable sub-pages can be moved behind, but still not talk pages? What a strange behavior!
