We have sites like Cooking, Stats, and Apple which are Seasoned Advice, Cross Validated, and Ask Different respectively. And if I were to go to http://www.seasonedadvice.com or http://www.crossvalidated.com or http://www.askdifferent.com, it will redirect me to the appropriate site.
Yet, if we run into those odd questions that are asked on entirely the wrong site, we can't use these cool names in our migration utility. If I wanted to migrate a perfectly appropriate question to our Cooking site, I can't call it by its name as shown below:
Consider that it isn't a pure name match in the first place - you can find "Software Quality Assurance and Testing" by typing
sqa, which is the URL for the site. More egregiously, see the following for Motor Vehicles, which otherwise is accessed by typing "motor".
It shouldn't be too much of a stretch to allow us to use the special URLs as well, would it?
