That was a choice we made for CMake because the Mantis issues are
widely cited in the wild so we will keep it up permanently as a
reference.  Since we're keeping it up anyway we might as well avoid
duplication.  Also, the Mantis CSV export does not include the
descriptions so it will take a bit more work to do the migration
with them.

For VTK and ParaView we can look at including the descriptions
if necessary.

Yes.  I was concerned about that at first for CMake but it has
been surprisingly easy to work with the dual pages since the
migration (e.g. via browser tabs).
