You could use interwiki's for that  so you can write
[[:wikipedia:Article]] and the link will forward you to Wikipedia.
I believe the interwiki Wikipedia is set up by default so
[[wikipedia:Article]] will already work
Thanks! This works. I'm using it in the form
[[:wikipedia:Article|Article]] so it doesn't show the ":wikipedia:"
part in the rendered article the link is in.
You can use the pipe trick for faster editing. Writing
[[wikipedia:Article|]] will save as [[wikipedia:Article|Article]] (the
leading colon is not needed for this interwiki).
