Where would this mapping be stored? Maybe it should be in the wiki, so
that documentation writers can maintain this themselves, and also
after a release documentation can be changed still. It's harder to do
automated operations on wiki pages, but it does ensure both users and
developers can edit this.

Creating redirect pages would be one option, e.g. just have
Doc2.6/Lookup/Object.location, this is already possible, but maybe not
ideal. Alternatively, documentation pages could have something like
{{DocID|Object.location}} template embedded in the wiki text, that
would be found automatically somehow?
