This one-shot convenience for the rare bookmarking experience comes at
the expense of having potentially befuddling hyperlinks that don't go
anywhere on every page of the site.

Long ago I learned that self-links are among the "top web design
mistakes".  They obviously bother me more than they bother most

I was using the Big Title Link  -- but only in lieu of the cancel
button on the edit page (on which the link wasn't self-referring). 
Something similar can be provided by modifying the Edit Form.
