Even the best of intentions have consequences.

Perhaps massive rewrites should keep all the old section headers, to preserve off-page links.

But at the same time, periodic refactoring is necessary.
Wiki implementations almost always have a way to list "backlinks", sometimes called: "What Links Here".

Also, Wiki implementations keep a revision history, just roll-back to a prior version if required, then check the backlinks.

The specific details of those features vary from implementation to implementation, but will be there.
