I would not insist any more. My point was: the same reporter, the same 
case of punctuation after slash in link target, the same idea to make 
`org-insert-link' more smart.

I have some notes as well. Though I think it should be either FAQ entry 
or a separate document describing limitations of the parser (and test 
data set for the parser).

Things are more complicated. Without a filter (that it is not mentioned) 
it may cause undesired line breaks (the primary purpose of zero width 
space). Fortunately PdfLaTeX ignores them.

suggested word joiner U+2060, but this character is not a space for 
regular expressions. I experimented a bit, but I can not provide a 
summary yet, my notes are in early draft stage. the "Escape Character" 
section should be expanded to discuss more use cases.

Emphasis around other inline objects anyway can be easily broken. Try to 
make the whole string bold:

     begin =middle* verbatim= end

It may be useful to add a checker to `org-lint' that issues warnings for 
confusing link targets.

I believe that zero width space does not belong to "plain text markup" 
since it is invisible (at least by default). I see that printable ASCII 
characters are already in use, but I still think that U+200B should be 
used as rare as possible.

You are aware of my opinion now and I do not need more. You are free to 
ignore it since I can not offer anything better.
