As an alternative, I can offer that we continue to use Link: trailers with
extra data following the hashtag, as is already done for other trailers:

    Link:   #report
    Link: #review

Note, that this merely for completeness, not in opposition to the proposal. I
find the "Link:" trailer to be semantically redundant, since what follows is
already clearly a hyperlink. Adding "Link: " in front of it is only necessary
for consistency and machine parsing reasons.
