adjust Parser.php appropriately.
Anyway, it’s up to devs (seemingly Tim in

I am a dev. I've considered doing this, but doubt I'll find the
in the foreseeable future. I don't know whether it would be more
complicated to allow <a> or extended wikilinks. It would be up to
whoever implements it, should it be implemented.
If we want to maintain the pretense that ordinary articles should be
reasonably accessible to edit, I'd suggest that using <a> is probably
a better choice than extending the wikilink syntax. It feels more
natural to keep the special cases somewhat segregated in that way from
the ordinary code.
Just my two cents.
I suggest to use <a> for external links extended syntax and parametrized
[] for internal links so we can easily distinguish them.
