We don’t allow attributes for wikilinks.
That is, [[Special:Userlogout|log
out|id=logoutlink|style=color:red|title=This will log you out]] will
be a wikilink with style, title and id attributes. The current syntax
is a subset of my proposal, so nothing should break.
Are there more convincing examples? Wikitext is there to serve up
*content*, not to write the GUI with. It seems normal to me that a
logout link would be written as an http:// style link - not a
wikilink. Similarly, I'm having trouble picturing why a normal
wikilink should be styled with colour or special attributes.
Any better examples of why this would be a good thing? The other
example provided, coord strikes me as exactly the kind of weird
special case (it generally displays in the title area!) that deserves
to generate weird special xhtml...
