For internal links, I guess for an extension it would have to be links 
to internal pages that don't exist.

For external links, a template. I recall seeing one that simply 
displayed a "Bad Link" message with a nice graphic. A user who came 
across a page with a bad external link, could simply add {{Bad link}} at 
the appropriate place and next time someone knowledgeable wandered by 
they could repair the link.
