If you click mouse-1 outside a link, it moves the cursor.

If you click on a link, it follows the link.

If you drag inside or over a link behaviour varies with the
application, but my suggestion for emacs is that it highlights the
text and sets point at the end of the drag.

What you typically cannot do directly is set the mouse in the
middle of a link.  Typically you would use mouse-3 (right mouse)
to get a context menu for the link, and then cancel the menu.

Maybe in our case, if we enable this feature (as a user option)
clicking mouse-2 on a link should just set point there?
