But with a caveat.

Despite intuition, your example can be treated in two ways:
1. <begin italic>/Foo [[https://taz.de<end italic>/!5843294/][link witha bang]]/
2. <begin italic>/Foo <begin link>[[...]]/<end italic>

Org mode always chooses the first case as it prioritise markup that
starts early and ends early.

To force Org mode not treat internal /! as italics ending, you can
insert a zero-width space before "/": <zero width space>/!
So, what you see is not exactly a bug, but non-intuitive behaviour of
Org. (I do not like it, but we have reasons why Org parser behaves this

On the other hand, the example link could be inserted using

If one does the following:
1. emacs -Q /tmp/test.org
2. Type "/Begin italic "
3. C-c C-l https://taz.de/!5843294/ <RET> <test> <RET>
4. The inserted text is not a link because the problematic /! is not
   fixed automatically.

I consider the above to be at least a bug in org-insert-link.
