I would not kill myself (or anybody else) if it is called Links in the
end -- yet I do believe that the Links in WordPress are much more than
just hrefs: They are structured in categories, they have a description
and XFN metadata. When you have your Links/Bookmarks on a single page or
in the sidebar, it is almost like the Favorites/Bookmarks in a browser.
Ok, you place them not for yourself, but for others, but I think that's
not so important. This concept of structured and enriched Links makes
WordPress unique in a certain way, and I think there's nothing wrong in
emphasizing this (yes, also and especially for newbies).
