This is certainly invalid HTML in all standards. Inside an <a> tag you  
can have only "inline" tags line <b>, <i>, <em>, <tt>, <span>. You cannot  
have block tags like <p>, <h#> or <div> among others.

Why would you need such links? Via CSS it is possible to apply block level  
styles to inline tags, you can show/hide parts of the link text, etc. See  
for example http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/CSSPopups .

So, you can probably have

  [[link | '''Link''' %more% This is a fine link  %% ]]
