@MrBlueSky: I am resetting the assignee of this task because there has not been progress lately (please correct me if I am wrong!).
Resetting the assignee avoids the impression that somebody is already working on this task. It also allows others to potentially work towards fixing this task.
Please claim this task again when you plan to work on it (via Add Action...Assign / Claim in the dropdown menu) - it would be welcome! Thanks for your understanding!

This is a New Pages task, we believe the proper team to tag this with is Core Platform Team

So, this doesn't seem to be a high-priority feature request, and we don't have a project this wedges into too well. I've put this into our Backlog, so if someone gets to it we'll pick it up.

@JTannerWMF have you had any other user input on this since the original request in (checks notes) 2013?
