I think it will be very useful, for permalinks.
That way, no matter what you do with the thread title, the permalink will always be the same and not break external links.

The title in the link doesn't matter, just the ID at the end. It will 301 redirect you to the correct URL if necessary.

Good to know, thanks Mike. :)
I presume pretty much everything is built the same way, when related to links?

You have to explicitly check URL canonicalization where you want it. I think we do it on the big pages now (threads, forums, members, forum list), but it's not hard to add.
