Okay, I understand.  It feels natural to me too.

I'm not sure `org-link-make-description-function' is used a lot out
there, but the change may break existing configurations/hacks.

Also, is it something we could use in the current export backends
or just for the users?  If the latter, then I'm in favor of making
this move, probably for 9.5.

Nicolas, what do you think?
