View.getJob(String} works for URL binding only in case ItemGroup.getUrlChildPrefix returns "job". It would be nicer to allow "item", "branch", etc. to be used, but these do not get URL-bound. Perhaps View.getDynamic(String) needs to consider the prefix?
(AbstractFolder could do the same, though it is expected that a subclass overriding getUrlChildPrefix would add a static binding getter.)
According to AbstractItem.getShortUrl, the prefix may be ".", which is to say no prefix at all. This is used by MatrixProject and others, though I suspect never for a TopLevelItem child.
