Wouldn't that need be much less if the links where underlined or only underlined links where followed by mouse-1 (as I wrote in the previous comment to your proposal)?
It has nothing to do with link appearance. (It would not help to underline links in Dired.) Quite the contrary:
I don't want to have to look carefully to see if
I'm clicking on a link, just to select a buffer. I don't want to check whether text is underlined or whatever.
Thanks, I see. But I believe many people would think differently since they have learned otherwise from for
example web browsers.

And that's precisely why we let them use mouse-1 to follow links. I am not
proposing to take that away from anyone who expects or wants it.

I am sure you not. I just thought this was a good time to ask for consistency regarding underline. (I think telling about it in a context like this may be better than making it a separate proposal, but I am not sure.)
