Comment (by helen):

 Technical thoughts:

 The best approach to this is probably one of "hiding" as opposed to
 "removing". If we can be smart about detecting any changes to the
 shortlink and continuing to show the button/link in that case, that would
 be a good and user-friendly thing to do. People do use shortlinks for
 analytics and that type of thing still.
