That was discussed as a technique (~August 2017) before we had scoped out microdata as the technique for links.

It was dropped a while ago due to internationalisation issues, and it would limit the terms that people could use in labels, which was not acceptable.

I think it does need to be done in metadata (attributes) rather than visible text or AccName.
