It's a backward step for the vast majority of people who just want
to seek to that point on the map though as it forces a round trip to
the server and a full reload of the page.
If you want a permalink then you can click on the search result to go
to the right point and then get a permalink for the current map position
in the normal way.

It's called the view tab. And yes, I know that's now the best way to
include permalink support but until we come up with something better
that's where it is.
