I think the advantage is that it would allow us to generalize the concept

angle I would say that short urls of this type have become rather popular.
You could of course use goo.gl, but then your url is obfuscated, whereas in
this case it's not.
I can't really see en.wp.w.org
(11 characters, four components, hard to
remember) as being that much better than en.wikipedia.org
characters, three components, easier to remember, contains the Wikipedia
, on the other hand, is 8 characters long, has only two
components, and is a natural contraction of en.wikipedia.org
