Thank you for pointing this out.

[Now speaking from the perspective of Emacs Muse, which I maintain,
and which uses the same syntax for links.]

format.el does not seem to be able to handle what needs to be done,
however.  For one thing, it can only do translations that involve one
property at a time.  Muse needs to be able to add the muse-link to the
entire link, a face to the description, and invisible to the link
destination.  Just using the display property isn't enough, because
(1) there is a helpful feature of jumping to the next link by hitting
TAB, which is fastest when using the muse-link property and (2) it
apparently inhibits the user from editing the link description in
place, which is a useful feature.

I don't see any mention of format.el on this thread, apart from the
message this one responds to.

If you are going to question the way something is done, please mention
an alternative at the same time, otherwise it is hard to take you
