No, because that would not change the other *-link widgets (custom
group links, info links, etc) that are also present. These are
generally specified at run-time using an :action argument, and there
is no single localized change that can be used to implement the
follow-link behavior fdor them. Changing
widget-documentation-link-add would mean that documentation string
link widgets would behave differently from other link widgets in the
same Customize buffer!
