When someone uploads a file, what you get in the email is the actual URL of the file at its uploaded location.  You can look at that URL and see the actual location and the actual filename.

When something about it changes (its name or its folder), then obviously the URL isn't valid anymore.  What you would need is to be sent a new URL every time the file is moved or renamed.

When someone renames a file, they can check the box to notify all members too, just like they do when it was uploaded.  But there isn't an automatic email sent just to Moderators like there is with uploads.

I would be happy with this, too.

When someone moves a file to a different folder, I think there is no option to send an email to anyone.

And this also.

The more general problem is stale links for whatever reason and making things more robust and foolproof, and thus less confusing.
