I have the feeling that it would cause some visual "jumping" when the
link is very different (e.g., wider) than its visible pars. Some links
tend to be very long. So showing the full link is not an option.

I don't know about showing only the brackets. Would you want to provide
a mock-up ?

Thank you.
