Exactly. IMO, this jumping is much more disturbing than a static pair of
additional square brackets.

I understand what `prettify-symbols-mode' is. My real problem is
understanding how it can help with links in Org. In particular, I'd like
to see it, or any other mechanism, turn

  [[http://orgmode.org][Org mode]]

displayed as

  Org mode


  [Org mode]

when point is near _any_ of the boundaries and doesn't trigger anything
on anything not related to an Org link.

I don't know if that would be sufficient to make it useful, but it needs
to be as subtle as possible. We already have a not-so-subtle solution
with visible square brackets.
