I was searching for Dead Ends and started typing [Dead E...] and the auto fill in the search box produced Dead End Node which is not what I wanted. There was no link to the section I was looking for either, not that I'm sure there should have been one. But possibly a "Dead End" that populates in the search box and leads to the section in the JSG, that would have helped.

Good idea. Done.

Tried searching for a state wiki page using the two letter abbreviation. [NY]/[ny], [CT]/[ct], maybe these (and other states) should offer a redirect or disambiguation page when appropriate.

Good idea. Are there any obvious disambiguations from the state abbreviations?

MP, MH, (maybe FM and NE) at a quick glance.

I am working on the 48 continental, AK, HI, and DC. Since we don't have pages for the territories I am not working on those for now.

I created up to DC so far. We only need the all caps version since the lower case combinations will automatically use the caps entries correctly.

I've recently added ROW, which was also added to the [[Glossary]].

You might consider adding ROTW as a redirect to this as well.
