This is a very nice feature! Once it is fully implemented,
it will have a benefit that you may not have anticipated,
as explained below:

Many of my TODO items include links to the online places
where the task is to be done. I also use Org id links to
the tasks whenever I write about them in my work log, and
org-insert-link expands the link in the task to give
something like "Headline Text {{link address}{link text}}".
Because the link address is visible, it's very cluttered.

With the new feature, I can put the links in the extra text
and avoid cluttering up the headline. Hmm, but then they won't
show up as links in the agenda view. Regardless of that, it's
a good feature, and much appreciated!
