Consider a re-user displaying article contents including, for example,
an interwiki link template with the destination project's logo, but
displaying the text without hyperlinks. The original use case, linking
to a Wikimedia project, would not apply.

Some mirrors will strip some or all links, or replace them with their
own links. Similarly offline-readable versions of Wikimedia content
may strip or substitute links while retaining images (though you would
hope they would strip most templates too).
