markdown's reference links with the implicit name syntax - improvement suggestion?!?

I like to use markdown's reference links with the implicit name syntax. It allows keeping a table of links seperate from the referencing link.
However, what I don't like is that I have no way of (optionally) including the table of links in the markdown's output.
For instance, in the example:
I get 10 times more traffic from [Google] than from
[Yahoo] or [MSN].
[google]: http://google.com/ "Google"
[yahoo]: http://search.yahoo.com/ "Yahoo Search"
[msn]: http://search.msn.com/ "MSN Search"
The hypertext it produces is fine, and includes the links as defined by the reference links. But I would like additionally to be able to have the table of links appears elsewhere in the html output.
Is there some way of extending markdown in this direction.
Perhaps a syntax like  would produce a table of links, and [id1,id2] would produce the table for just links with ids of id1 or id2.....
