A "good writing experience" includes a "good editing experience", or so
I think. I'm suggesting to solve some problems related to the latter,
under certain circumstances I explained in my original post. 

The `org-link' face is not enough, as pointed out, because it's not
a matter of making the links stand out in the buffer.

The problem is not really about editing the link itself, but editing
around the link. The problem also arises for the text just before or
just after the link. "C-c C-l" cannot help here.

I cannot tell, however, if Clément's suggestion is good or not. This is
why I'd like to see a mock of the result, if anyone wants to implement
