Ok, I found the thread[1] about extensible syntax for links.

I don't think that it would be a good idea to use a completely different
syntax for just one type of link. Either we change the whole link system
into the extensible syntax proposal, or we don't change it at
all. I don't mind either way, but that's orthogonal to the problem at

For now, I'll assume we keep the classical link syntax.

Org already has targets for that: <<anywhere>> and [[anywhere]].  The
[[ref:element]] link is more interesting for its export effect. Moving
back and forth between it and targeted element is a bonus.
