Flow API: Let code append to the board header with action=edit&appendtext
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

PageCuration adds templates to pages using action=edit&appendtext=wikitext to add . This fails on Flow boards (T85030) but we could intercept it and turn it into a Flow board header edit. Likewise for prependtext=

This is similar to T59989.

I don't think we want to put messages sent to the user (i.e. communication that could start a discussion) in the header.

Declining for the same reason as T59989: S2. Flow API: Let code add a new topic with action=edit&section=new. It's very hard to shim an existing API (one that uses a different revision model) while handing all the edge cases and not confusing clients. They will have to use the dedicated Flow edit-header API.
