I just today looked at the function, and I see docs says it should
remove fontification from links, which can partly be set to invisible
since org mode hide markup, so it is probably legit what they do. I am
not sure if that function runs on entire buffer. I'll CC this to
org-mail list so we can see what they say.

I am not really at home with font-lock and text properties, but as it
seems to me from this experience, is that proper way would be to use
visibility spec, and create custom property, since so many different
modes vill fight for default 'visibility property. However I was lazy,
so I just made sure to fontify entire buffer before I do my thing, but
it is not very robust approach :).
