Custom external Url length on episerver Shortcuts?



Is it possible to somehow use urls longer than 255 characters on the Episerver built-in "Shortcut" function?

To reproduce:
Episerver Editor gui -> Page -> Settings -> Manage Shortcut -> Shortcut type=another website -> External link = add an url longer than 255 chars here.
Then you'll get an error message:
"Error setting value to 'PageLinkURL' on 'EPiServer.Cms.Shell.UI.ObjectEditing.InternalMetadata.ShortcutBlock'. "" has exceeded its limit of 255 characters."

Any feedback on this would be appreciated :)

Has anyone any pointers here?

There is a workaround for URL property type descibed here:

But can it be applied in an existing base-property?
