It would be nice to have a slightly shorter link to a proposal (and for referrals).

So, for:

area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/47932

have this also link there: (similar to what works for questions)

area51.stackexchange.com/p/47932

An even shorter link would be preferable, but the proposed way is the simplest I could think of, requiring the least amount of dev.

Referrals:

The links to referrals can also be made shorter, from:

http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/47932/natural-language-processing?referrer=Wf-h_LcKXwAFK9yUPwMC_g2

to:

http://area51.stackexchange.com/p/47932?r=Wf-h_LcKXwAFK9yUPwMC_g2

But, we have a unique user ID, so this could also work: (identical to sharing posts)

http://area51.stackexchange.com/p/47932/79578

(note - current links don't have the same format, so there wouldn't be a conflict and current links can still work)

To anyone interested, this may already work: (unconfirmed)

    In addition, the referrer link could be shorter, too. – unor May 11 '13 at 14:31

It looks like the URLs have only got longer! This is what it looks like now:
