links in MediaWiki to the query special page. Now if we would use % encoding,
then MediaWiki would expand that in links to create symbols that are not
allowed in links. You can try the query link:
Another reason is that we use this as a common encoding in all contexts that
occur in SMW. Now in RDF/OWL, URLs do alse occur as XML entities, and % is
not allowed in such entities either.

Special:Version to be able to register also older SMWs. But all the
additional information (e.g. page count) comes from Special:ExportRDF?stats.
It would otherwise be very hard to parse this data from Special:Statistics in

TechPresentations of course cannot be registered anyway, since it blocks
