We'll probably have to do both in even more situations than before
(links becoming more important while the text form still being
indispensable as proof of evidence for many applications),
since the two ways of expressing the fact are complimentary
and by no means full substitutes of each other. Thus it will be
crucial to never lose the connection between the two for a given
instance, i.e. having seemingly independent series "statements"
and series "links".
