Yes I do and pretty much know based on what I've seen in numerous usability
testing reviews, videos and observation.

Another point: This would cause there to be two ways to make a link. People
seeing <a href="link">text</a> will never be able to figure out what it means
unless we document it together with documentation of [link text].

And yes I know there are two ways to make a table ({| and <table>) but that
doesn't justify adding more.
