The reasoning is that Dxxxx space isn't unique and the review may happen in a different instance of phab than the default one. When those exact objections were raised, the experience of moving to bugzilla was cited to show the URL can remain stable. And if we went to another system's, we could keep the old in place and then we would need a new URL to disambiguate. There were good reasons we decided this before.

I completely agree.  In fact, I’d like to see full bugzilla URLs in commit logs instead of just the bug number.  Every app I use to read commit logs will make URLs clickable, even my terminal emulator.  The fact that I have to manually open bugzilla and copy/type the bug number is annoying.

And yes, I volunteer to make the necessary changes to accept URLs in the PR field.  We just need consensus.
