For instance, take a site that only displays the last StableCopy of a page. One user decides to rename a page, deleting the original and moving its content to a new page. Suppose the new page becomes hotly debated for a long time, but the old page stabilises. The audience will see the old page disappear, but never see its replacement. The edit dependency is revealed.
EditDependencies can also be used to improve RecentChanges, by merging trivial dependent edits. Page renaming, for instance, can be displayed as a single entry on RC.
As with EditCategories, dependencies can be supported on a page-level granularity by co-opting the edit summary, say by naming and labelling a dependency with a simple pattern, like ((<dependency name here>)).
Discuss new idea. [EditCopy: ((Renamed OldPage to NewPage))]
EditDependencies are EditProperties?.
