This really feels wrong to me. If it were up to me, this would just
break, and users would get back something like `[**test**]`, because
supporting this across versions is going to be a big hassle, and there's
no reason anyone can't simply use [**test**][test] instead, which makes
for much nicer references. The reference name should be text, not markup!
