I think this (writing your own defun) is the cleanest way to handle
this.  There is no way for Org to ensure a consistent behaviour for all
possible link types, there are too many.  Org can ensure consistency
only for physical files, and even then when they are opened inside
Emacs.  There is no shortage of links to binary files!

For what it's worth, I have customised notmuch open function to use the
notmuch-tree interface.
