Are you going to change the rest of the internet too?

Seriously, re-arranging stuff either leads to dead links or a spaghetti mess 
of redirects.

I see from my wiki page subscriptions that you've already started "cleaning 
stuff up".  

It's probably because I'm old and cranky, but I tend to believe that web links 
should be persistent.  IF we are going to break a bunch of links it ought to 
be thought through and agreed, not executed and then forcing people to react.

And yes, I neglected to respond to the first message, so this is tardy.  Sorry 
about that.
