The current expectations file has lines that (barely but) usually
clock in at under 80-characters.

I am reluctant to change things that make it more effort for a user to
type in and make it harder to read by going over 80 characters and
wrapping. I'm not sure what real advantage would be gained by making
it a URL to offset this. I have rarely found myself
cutting-and-pasting or clicking on stuff from this file.

So, I would vote for a shorter shortcut, like the 3-4 character
prefixes that have been suggested.
