1. I am the editor of my changes. Not that PSF guy who owns all the stuff
out there and makes himself important by "taking responsibility" over what
I do. If I had the information about external sources linking to this page,
I'd considered contacting these source for update. I mean written the
letter here earlier. =)
2. The change requested it to enable tracking of incoming sources for
MoinMoin pages. It is exactly for the purpose you mentioned - to remove any
fear, uncertainty and despair from people editing the wiki that their
change may or may not break anything.  Many wiki pages don't have any
external references at all and should be reorganized to make somewhat
logical structure from that pile of data.
