Yes, this is to continue to allow words to have colons after them.
For example, if an author writes

InterMap links aren't page links -- they're always treated as
external links. For page links we normally use one of the other

I don't think that InterMap links are the way to go here --
I think you really want a custom markup. My suggestion would be
to redefine "[top]" as a shortcut:
'[[#top | top]]');
This simply replaces any occurrence of "[top]" in the markup
with "[[#top | top]]", which then generates a jump to top link.
Also, since the page content typically has <div id='wikitext'>
at the beginning of the page text, you could also define it as
'[[#wikitext | top]]');
which prevents you from having to add [[#top]] markers to the
beginning of each page. For example, see
Or you could make it jump to some other automatically id= tag; the
appropriate one to use will probably depend on the skin you're
