Tom, I see and share you point, however sometimes more specific and 
convincing arguments are necessary.

Why unconstrained markup ("//") does not cause problems in asciidoc? 
Maybe it does but they are not immediately obvious. I don know since I 
have never used asciidoc. Maybe parser behaves in a different way than 
org-element. Maybe plain text links are not allowed at all. Almost any 
URL contains such pair of markers: https://orgmode.org/, so it should be 
addressed somehow.

Examples of corner cases that are used for tests should be more visible 
to users otherwise it is hard to use such samples in discussions. They 
should be annotated (arbitrary examples from recent discussions):

- input: [[https://first/-/url/][pre]] text [[https://second-url/?][post]]
   parsed: (
     (link :target "https://first/-/url/" :description "pre")
     " text "
     (link :target "https://second-url/?" :description "post"))
   comment: "Regexp-based syntax highlighting falsely finds italic text 
because URLs have slashes similar start and end of italics"

- input: A _b =c_ d= e_ f
   parsed: (
     "A "
     (underline "b =c")
     " d= e_ f")
   comment: "Users of markdown may falsely expect that c_ is protected 
by verbatim markers and underlined text is ended at e_"
