It sounds reasonable, but why did you initially select (...)?

I'm not sure how relevant this is, but on a Swedish keyboard {..} are more 
inconvenient. I also don't see {...} as that intuitive, but OTOH I guess 
(...) wasn't either.

Some alternatives:

    [[(http://www.)pmichaud.com]]		- today
    [[{http://www.}pmichaud.com]]		- { ... }
    [[<http://www.>pmichaud.com]]		- < ... >

What other characters are the that are illegal in URIs?
