I disagree. URLs should be stable, especially when the cost is low.
I'll start moving the pages to the new locations and I'll put in
redirects whenever I find a broken link.

Don't please. We have put a lot of work into this new structure and we
don't need to destroy it again with tons of redirects. Please follow the
new guidelines.

Our users out there do not care at all about your new guidelines.

For our users all links which we provide to them at zillions
of various places (like manuals, man pages, YaST help texts,
whatever other documentation) have to work.

Therefore redirects are needed - not for each old article - but
for each old article for which we provide a link to our users.

Just one single example:
