Yeah. I recall a number of bug report related to this behaviour.
Though I wanted to focus on org-insert-link here.
We can expect users to change the markup if they type a problematic link
manually, but not when specialised functions like org-insert-link are
used. In this scenario, org-insert-link should take care about not
messing up the existing markup.

Yeah. Right. It should even be an easy patch, which would be welcome :)

I also like such behaviour, but it would require multi-pass parsing or
parser tree branching. Nicolas opposed it.

Best,
