Necessary?

What with the new search engine and such, surely shortcuts no longer serve a purpose?

They actually do still serve a purpose. The idea behind shortcuts (not getting mixed up with redirects) is so in community discussions, if a user wants to link to a certain Scratch Wiki namespace page (not a normal article), they can use the shortcuts, to save space in their messages.
