How would this be used? Just by non-query actions that might use ApiPageSet and want to allow "titles=Foo.jpg|Bar.jpg" instead of "titles=File:Foo.jpg|File:Bar.jpg"?

Correct. Would be good for the image rotation action, or any other alike. Should be trivial to do and non-breaking. I made it as a bug just so i don't forget.
