There are many pages for which VisualEditor is broken. In some cases, the page syntax can be changed to avoid the problem. In other cases (such as nlwp's largethumb, dewp dab pages, enwp episode lists), the design affects many pages, and the only feasible solution is to fix the parser. While we wait for fixes, the VE should be disabled on those pages known to be affected.
The set of pages to be VE-disabled could be a category, if you trust the villagers..:-)
Or a title blacklist in MediaWiki: namespace so it is admin only
Or a regex blacklist in MediaWiki: namespace so it is easier to blacklist all pages which include a certain element.
