U4-230 - Feature Request: TinyMCE Tokenised local links, but not local media?

If I add a link to an internal url I get a href="/" ie the link is to the document id=1557 so any changes to the page name, sitemap location mean the link isn't broken.

however, adding a local image from media gives src="/media/1812/message-impression-medium.gif"

Seems a bit strange that this isn't "/"

As the scenario goes, I;ve added an image... create all my pages with a link to that media.

I then realise it was the wrong image, so go to the media section and locate my item and change the image... the link is then something completely different (if I say remove the previous image then the id remains the same but the image name doesn't, if I don't say remove the previous image then I have an orphaned image (eg in the media folder as a file but no longer in the media section of umbraco))

So for instance the url becomes

.. "/media/1557/newimage.gif" and all my pages have broken image links.

I thought the idea of the media area was so that the content has a reference to a media item, and not a static url to a point in time url of a media item...

Can this issue get a little more priority?

It definitely should imho, it's such a core functionality for a CMS.

+1 - This would make moving media into a CDN a breeze :) (and also a short guid for each media item would be super nice! :))

This is definitely needed! Vote people!

I think this is a very important feature to include in Umbraco 7
