yeah, not so much of a good idea, for the translation reasons specified, and
it'd be quite a lot of backend work to cover, what, maybe 15 existing links in
Though it's often comprehensive enough, it's not like wikipedia is the be-all
and end-all of free information.
Not worth the time and trouble when it's easier to just use <uri>s the way
they're supposed to be used. Requiring a whole different format to write out
simple links in a doc is unintuitive and needlessly complex.
