Perhaps adding two more index entries, something like

  @cindex links to documentation for customization items
  @cindex customization items, links to documentation

would do the job.  Currently, I see only one index entry there:

  @kindex address@hidden, customization keyword}

which IMO is not enough for when the reader wants to find information
about adding links to the docs.  The existing index entry only covers
efficiently the case when the reader is specifically looking for the
'link' keyword and already knows what that's used for.
