This is more complicated than it looked. For now we might have to just accept wikitext (like the edit summary) instead of using a VE surface widget (like the reference dialog), because DISPLAYTITLE can do crazy things like accept templates.

That works for now, though it's imperfect. :-)

Okays, turns out I hadn't read this properly and it's blocked on Parsoid recognising this as a meta item rather than a transclusion of 'DISPLAYTITLE'.
