Repeating my previous post in slightly different words:

http://testgrid.allmydata.org:3567/uri/URI:DIR2-RO:j74uhg25nwdpjpacl6rkat2yhm:kav7ijeft5h7r7rxdp5bgtlt3viv32yabqajkrdykozia5544jqa/wiki.html 

is too long and ugly to be exposed to humans and will still be too long 
and ugly if you make it half sized.

is too long to be exposed to humans.

Humans should not normally be shown globally unique identifiers at all.
