I'm not sure it is. My point was that I thought [[this]] is much better
than [this] (at least at the moment I do; I may change my mind ;). I
think [this is potentially] [ambiguous], because it's currently valid
Markdown (you either get a link, or explicit square brackets - both of
which seem valid, according to the syntax). 

Saying that [[this]] is better than [that] doesn't imply that [[this]]
is better than [that][] of course - and I agree, I'm not sure it is.
