There is only one option, per Org syntax.

The link is broken. The fontification is at fault here. This is because
its implementation cannot understand fully the syntax(!). So, you'll
encounter some glitches like this one from time to time.

Patches welcome, of course. However, the fontification will never be
perfect unless its internals are rewritten.
