The Std/Docu/Links file says: "A possibly simpler way to create this link is ... The blue coloring and underlining are applied automatically.".

Would it be:
1 - more consistent
2 - helpful
3 - fairly easy to implement
to automate the "blue coloring and underlining" when the Tools -> Create Link is used on the old " <command>text<>" format also?

Well, I think the old format is for backwards compatibility only and therefore it should not be changed.
For me, it is only here because many users are used to it and would be confused if it was gone.
After users discover the new format, they will stop using the old format anyway.

I think this is now ready for voting. Can you please post an "End-to-end" diff?

When I want to update the hidden part of a StdStamps.View by using its Form I <Ctrl>-click on it.
When I want to update the hidden part of a StdLinks.Link by using its Form I Right-click on it.

This seems like an unnecessary inconsistency to me.
I think it would be better to use the StdStamps approach.

<Ctrl>-click on a link is already used for transforming the link to the special syntax.
