U4-8950 - Link to file in RTE are direct/static

Duplicates: U4-8949

A client of us reported that, when media items (the files) are changed, the link in the RTE is not being changed according to the new name. In 2010, there was a forum post (https://our.umbraco.org/forum/using/ui-questions/14323-Keeping-media-links-intact-with-a-new-file) about the exact same "issue".

Is this something which can be adressed in an upcoming version?

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a page with RTE.
  2. Create a media item (for example a PDF).
  3. Create a link in the RTE to the media item created at 2.
  4. Save (and publish) the page (1).
  5. Change the file in the media item (2).
  6. Check the URL in the RTE, it has not been changed.
