No.. See [[WP:WAWI]], specifically the part that states "If, in this
framework, you link from an article to a specific Wikipedia page, *use
external link style so the link will make sense in any context*."  I
recently had to edit [[Essjay controversy]] because someone used an
internal link in the External Links to link to his talk page.

Which someone just undid.  Grr.

This time I'm adding an in-your-face comment so it doesn't get "fixed" again.
