Why move a hypertext link away from its context?
When writing scientific articles, many journal require you to include a specific
citation within the text to every single reference in the bibliography.
Drawing the analogy, your principle of keeping all links only in the @seealso at the end is exactly the opposite and means that the reader himself has to try to
figure out which link has to do with what sentence of the main text.
