I realy have now idea how "nesting of links" should be handeled. Maybe it should

"Disabling" markup implies that the software knows it's happening and does
something about it; in reality, the software simply doesn't know what's
intended, and (in a sense) makes a guess. I'm inclined to think that that markup
example is broken anyway, so it doesn't really matter what the software does, a
user is going to have to fix it - "garbage in, garbage out" as they say.
I'm marking this INVALID in the sense that there's no "correct" behaviour, so
the current behaviour can't really be considered "incorrect".
Please check the output; if it's creating invalid HTML output THAT IS A BUG IN MEDIAWIKI.
(Please check both what's created by MediaWiki directly and what tidy ends up with.)
Hm, on my testwiki without tidy it generates nested <a> tags (<a
class=external>...<a class=internal>...</a>...</a>), so I gues if you want to
guarantee validity, that's a bug alright.
I think a clean solution is to add "$text =
$this->replaceLinkHoldersText($text);" somewhere inside
Parser::replaceExternalLinks() - so that the internal link is turned into plain
text, and thus part of the text for the external one. But I won't commit now,
because I'm too tired to be confident I'm not being stupid ;)
