A permalink to the history would be really useful. If it was just the
author list and not potentially problematic edit summaries, it's not
too likely to cause problems. (Problem usernames can be hidden

Right now there's no link to the history's permalink even for
non-deleted pages. But it is possible,
will always link to the history of the page that is at [[x]] now even
if x is moved and [[x]] becomes a totally different article.
