I tried to see to advantage of making "external URL" go away but failed. I like those icons and don't see the point.

The only advantage of your patch is that you can link to content elements. But couldn't it be done by allowing tt_content records as well as page records in the "Shortcut to page:" field?

I don't get it why knowadays everbody seems to want to remove this page type or that ;-)
