Would like to suggest language independent page-links

The current versions of CKEdit, create links like ".../en-us/path/page.aspx".

This works fine as long as the pages are in one language.
The challenge is, when I select another language (like dutch) the complete UI changes to dutch (which is good), but the page-links are still like "/en-us/path/page.aspx" (even if the editpage is like "/ctl/Edit/mid/380/language/nl-NL/Default.aspx")

Would it be an idea to create an option '[ ] language independent page-links' (or any better name) which would result in pagelinks like ".../path/page.aspx" instead of ".../en-us/path/page.aspx"?

OK new Version is online. I Removed the language parameter from the url in the Link Dialog. I don't know if you noticed but in the filebrowser where you can also select a Page Link you have the option to add an language parameter, with a dropdown with all available languages.

Thanks for the quick response.
The language independent links works great.
The option to choose a language in the file-dialog hasn't been noticed by me until you pointed me in that direction.
This option may be useful to direct a visitor to a page in another language.
