I don't see in there any argument to have midword links, it's presented as a consequence of other patch.
I'm a heavy user of <<<these links>>> to mark concepts' definitions, they are much more useful than <<these>> or [[these]]. I have notes about programs I tried, like <<<R>>>, <<<at>>> or <<<ps>>>, <<<C>>>, <<<CR>>> vs <<<LF>>> vs <<<CRLF>>>, 3-letter stock tickers, … so now I'm seeing blue links everywhere in the middle of words. I can get used to it, but it's ugly and not useful.
I only need links surrounded by non-letters, like:
organization ← certainly I'm not using the letter 'a' as a separator. I don't want link.
org:mode ← ':' is a non-letter, so it's a separator. I want link
orgもmode ← what's も? Let's simply say it's a letter, so no separator. No link, ok.
org'mode ← is ' a letter? Ask people, I think most say no. So: with link.
<<<o'clock>>> (oh, a non-letter inside. Ok)
o'clocking ← no, I'm not using 'i' as a separator. No link.
"o'clock" ← is " a letter? No. So: with link
The only use case I see is using radio links to mark the root of a word so that the inflected words are also highlighted, e.g. <<<script>>> would highlight „scripting“. But hey, when I want both „script“ and „scripting“ highlighted, I use radio links on both, not a problem.
Can't we break at non-letters? Not at non-„word-constituents“, but at non-letters. If emacs doesn't provide that concept, better build it.
