Thanks for making this suggestion. We don’t currently have plans to implement this, but would love to better understand the scenarios and need.
Do you expect that people are deleting pages, or changing pages/content names frequently enough that they’re breaking other pages/content without knowing it?
Is the site owner responsible for fixing that content or the authors/editors moving the content around?

About the Sites Product Team's comment, the scenario is not so much the pages are changing, it's groups external to a department that either change the website platform, server cluster, or website domain... When this happens with one group, it's manageable. But when you connect to 15+ external sites (and those sites change about every 1-2 years), it can be frustrating to keep up with.
Whether the external sites are responsible or the site linking to them is responsible, we still need a tool to help out.
If the external sites need to fix it, they need a way to see which sites are referencing them. If the site using the link needs to fix it, then a broken link report is the better option.
