Too much thought required to make a rational comment on this. ;-)
It ain't broke, so I see no need to fix it.

If the element "pointed to" is an external hyperlink target (with a
URI in its link block; see #2 below) the URI from the external
hyperlink target is propagated to the internal hyperlink targets;
they will all "point to" the same URI. ...
In a chain of targets, all but the last "link" in the chain are
internal targets, by definition -- they have no URI or hyperlink
reference to the right of the ":". The nature of the final link in
the chain determines the nature of all the links:
.. _link 1:
.. _link 2:
.. _final: http://example.org
