I admit this feature request is probably somewhat limited in useful scope, but I'm throwing it out there anyway. Inspired by this answer, and because I want to use it on this one, I'm requesting that
name be supported on
a tags in posts.
On very long answers, such as the closing/migration guidance answer, this would allow direct linking to the specific closure reason. This would then allow us, when someone asks why a question was closed, to link directly to the appropriate reason and description thereof.
I recognize the limited scope of this, however, I have seen other long answers that could stand to have that kind of "deep" linking ability as well.
(If this is a dupe; I couldn't find it in a quick Google search. However, if it is, please identify the dupe and I myself will gladly contribute a close vote!)
(The original incarnation of this post had either
id, but preferenced
name. Per Koper's answer, which I agree with, I took out the idea of supporting
id, because Koper's right -- too dangerous.)
