Just as a data point for the discussion: using links with page names,
where the page has been renamed, are handled quite gracefully by
Confluence. No automatic redirect, but a "Page not found" with "The
page you were looking for may have been renamed to the following:
<link to new page>".

See for example:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SVN/FrontPage

Of course, in that case you also lose any "fragment" part (#section1)
of the incoming link.
