No it does not.  Removing the link, for example with
with `C-M-k' (when cursor is before the link), or with
`Esc C-delete' (when cursor is after the link),
and then inserting a new one is a pretty fast alternative.

Still, you proposal makes sense, will put it on the list.

Thanks. I was thinking of the case where you want to change the link
target, but not the description. In that case, deleting the whole link
is less convenient. But thanks for teaching me a new key sequence :) I
knew about C-M-k but not about Esc C-delete. Odd, though, that it
isn't also bound to C-M-delete...

A problem that I have with these sexp commands, and the reason I don't
use them much, is that they are very finicky about where the cursor
is. This is especially annoying in the case of links, where there are
several cursor positions at the beginning and end of the link that are
visually indistinguishable. Maybe there is a call for an
org-delete-link command that would work with the cursor anywhere in
the link, but I wouldn't give this a high priority.
