Let me clarify.

The new :insert-description parameter is a more fine-grained equivalent
to already existing org-link-make-description-function. The latter can,
de facto, return string or nil - it is passed to `read-string' as

So, I suggested interpreting nil return value in :insert-description
just as it is already interpreted in org-link-make-description-function.
Further, I asked to document that nil value is allowed - both in
:insert-description docstring section and in
org-link-make-description-function docstring.
