This would mean that the page needs to be updated whenever the referenced 
page(s) changes, e.g. the referenced pages all need a list of pages where 
they are mentioned in that way. I do think this is currently not easily 
to do, since that list is not kept (CMIIAW).

 "In 1988, Jack Thompson ran against Janet Reno for DA of Dade County:
 Thompson's unique campaign message was that Reno was unfit for the job
 because, as a closeted lesbian with a drinking problem, she was great
 candidate for blackmail by the criminal element. Jack never explained
 why this remained a threat even after he exposed her 'secret'. Reno
 cruised at the polls."
