wikipedia uri schema

When typing uris in places like reddit, it would really be nice if you could just type something like

[dog - wikipedia](wikipedia:dog)

[[wikipedia:dog]]

Instead of

[dog - wikipedia] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog)

Would encourage linking more.

Would need to bake the schema into browsers... so maybe we need an RFC standard for this... whatever would make this work

dog wikipedia
and press Enter/Return, and then click a link.

       I think this would be quite convenient, so bun. But I think a specific website may be considered inappropriate for a public-use schema… not sure. Either way, how do you handle other languages of Wikipedia, such as de.wikipedia.org? "wp/en:dog", "wp/de:Hund" might work.   

       [Vernon], the idea is not to get you to the Wikipedia article faster. It's to *create a link* to the Wikipedia article faster. The halfbakery equivalent of this reddit-centric (really, Markdown-supporting website- centric) idea would be typing "wikipedia:dog" instead of "https://en.wikipedia .org/wiki/Dog" in the halfbakery link URL field.   

       If you want to get to Wikipedia articles faster, set up a search shortcut in your browser. I just have to type "wp" followed by a space in my omnibar, and it gives me native Wikipedia search right there, complete with suggestions. The URL for that purpose, in case anybody wants it, is <https://en.wikipedia .org/w/index.php? title=Special:Search &search=%s>. (Remove the spaces I was forced to add to get that to fit 1999's column width. *cough*[jutta]*cough*) The one you get by right-clicking Wikipedia's search field results in not getting suggestions, for some reason.
