The magic links are awesome.

How much more awesome would it be to be able to make a comment linking to one of the URLs covered by a magic link, but with custom text?

Since the square-bracket link type isn't included in the mini-markdown used for comments, it could be stolen for this purpose.

Comment text like

Please [add that information][edit] to the body 
of your post rather than using comments.

or

Please [include the shortest possible amount of code that
demonstrates the problem you see][mcve].

would convert to

Please [add that information](http://{SITE}.stackexchange.com/posts/{ID}/edit) 
to the body of your post rather than using comments.

and

Please [include the shortest possible amount of code that
demonstrates the problem you see](http://stackoverflow.com/help/mcve).

for example.
