I don't see the use-case.  I know of no places where the added linking
is not desirable, if the user has already said that she wants it in the
help buffer.

I agree with this, but as we have discussed elsewhere this goes further
and deeper than this option.  It would amount to a major rethinking or
rewrite of help.el itself.  I hope that we will do that, eventually.
