Added #53315 for texts looking like telephone numbers changed in <a href="tel:...">...</a>

I wonder if https://ru.wikipedia.org/?diff=65612328 is another instance of this, or if it's a copy-paste bug instead.

What is this tracking, nowadays?

How to share the blacklist (or whatever cleanup method VisualEditor is currently using) with other consumers of Parsoid, such as T124152?

How to share the blacklist (or whatever cleanup method VisualEditor is currently using) with other consumers of Parsoid, such as T124152?

They should sub-class VisualEditor, which is tracked in T105447: [Epic] replace plain contenteditable with VisualEditor in ContentTranslation which I've now linked that to.

Makes sense. What if someone else, maybe outside MediaWiki, desired to use Parsoid for two-way conversion? Should everyone subclass VisualEditor or is this sort of HTML/wikitext cleanup of more general use?

Tracking bugs existed as a workaround to Bugzilla's shortcomings. There's no utility in keeping this around now.

If you don't replace a tracking bug with anything, you lose a useful feature to navigate between tasks…
