The first three make eminent sense. They are internally consistent, 
and elements stay in the same order.

Other than the fact that it might break existing markup, I would say 
get rid of the [[ Link Text -> http://www.example.com ]] markup 
altogether. It never made sense to me, the GUI link buttons in the 
edit window don't generate it, and we have a perfectly good markup 
that does the same job using one fewer character. (I never use it as a result.)

To ease the transition, deprecate it now by freezing its behavior and 
removing it from docs as a suggested markup.
