When renaming a page, what is the list of macros that will not update relative links?

I don't know the list, but the one that bothers me the most is the Include Page macro. I use this extensively and wish page name changes would be reflected here.

Thanks, Sandy!

I happened to be testing this out, and noticed that the page names in the Include Page and Excerpt Include macros were both updated when I changed the name of the referenced page (Confluence 6.1.2). Not sure when this behaviour might have changed, but glad to see it. 

I actually haven't run across any macros that aren't updated. Would be interested to hear whether there still are any.
