Link syntax (was: definition lists?)

Tangentially, I notice that this post by Waylan uses a link syntax which
doesn't seem to be defined by
<http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#link> but seems to
work in some implementations at <http://babelmark.bobtfish.net/> - that is,
from the git repo 
from the git repo 
from the [git repo] .
The link definition is then
Which of the outputs generated at
(also available at <http://tinyurl.com/6hq7ut> in case the full URI gets
mashed) is considered 'expected'?
IIUC, what I'll refer to "Waylan's syntax" makes any text enclosed in
square brackets into a candidate for a link; the parser then searches
for a matching link definition. I'm undecided whether the simplicity of
this syntax offsets the risk of breaking existing documents. A link will
only be generated if a matching link definition is found, IIUC, so
perhaps this risk is acceptably low?
Please point me to a previous discussion if available, I couldn't find
one in the archives.
