If links are local ones, I maintain them. Eg.:

These are becoming red when deleted, so I can click them, check "what 
links here" and when all fixed, remove the red proposal.

I would also do with Marked For Speedy Deletion items, but those are 
never sure to get deleted. So I don't. And when they are, it's too late. 
:-)  (SpecialPages broken links help.)

Maybe nothing should directly go to Speedy Deletion category. If we have 
a link at the Vote page, we can fix links after link becomes red. (I use 
direct Speedy Deletion marker when there is no reason for voting at all. 
I will stop doing that.)
