This has the drawback that it requires a different key-bind, instead
than using the org standard interface.

If it is not possible to teach org-insert-link to do that, it would be
an useful addition, I think.  It looks like it is possible to hook into
org-store-link to derive a description from the link type and path, but
the same is not possible with org-insert-link. I may propose a patch to
add this.
