There is no new functionality. The new link syntax is an important step
forward because it solves recurring issues that has plagued links for
years, e.g., when using hex-encoded URL. I don't think reverting it,
assuming it is manageable in the long run, is a good solution.

IMO, it would be more productive to think about what can be done in your
situation instead. For example, one solution could be to require "[[" to
be escaped in a link (current syntax already requires closing brackets
to be escaped in some situations). I'm not yet sure how to deal with it,
