What Eli says is also pertinent. But independent.
Again, you are talking about indexing _topics_. I am talking about _reference_
If a user wants to look up the particular button property `follow-link', she
does `i follow-link' and Bob's an uncle.
This is about looking up a particular :link alternative, such as
`emacs-commentary-link'. It is not about looking up the topic of "links to
documentation for customization items".
