+1 - the clearest way to communicate what's going on here is to use a
new child element.
Assuming that the contents of the link element are inlined content are
adding an extension without explicitly identifying it; this may
conflict with future uses. There isn't a way for an Atom processor to
inspect a link element and know that the content is inlined; they have
to guess that this specification is in effect, therefore the link
content is the inlined content. This isn't good practice.
