I think these links should be stable, for example the fix [1][2] adds 
the similar links, and they still work.
[1] https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-7072328
[2] https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8020688

But it will be good to double check the policy about the links, and find 
the responsible team for the site content (I am sure the formatting 
should be updated).

Best regards, Sergey.
