Oh... right. But in that case, the output should be "No description for
this link", as happens with HTML export. More helpful and informative
than an export failure.

In ODT, the link can be useful anyway, as the ODT output is a reference
field that can be automatically updated to a different format, e.g. to
refer to a page number instead of the (missing) headline text.
