AFAIU, this particular behaviour is undocumented. If it is used by some
other code, let's make tests for it, document, and fix in a better, more
explicit way.

I am unaware about the code using this link==description behaviour.

Applied onto main.


Could you please check the ongoing changes in this area
(storing/inserting links)? The code in this area is old, confusing, and
not fully documented. I'm afraid that we may break something in the
process of refactoring. If you see some dangerous changes, please let us
