Hi!

Following this github issue in org-roam
<https://github.com/org-roam/org-roam/issues/1317>, I would like to ask
about the behavior of links in org mode. More specifically, let's say I
have this headline:

* my heading
:PROPERTIES:
:GOAL: I want to be able to say [[file:something.org]]
:END:

:RELATED:
[[file:language.org]]
:END:


According to the issue, links in the properties drawer aren't considered
links by org mode (even though I can click on them and they work fine), but
on the other hand links on a separate drawer like RELATED are considered
links.
How stable is this behavior? Is it expected to change in the future?

Right, according to Org syntax, file:something.org is not a link.  With
point on it, org-element-context returns

  (node-property
    (:key "GOAL" :value "I want to be able to say [[file:something.org]]" ...))

Compare that to file:language.org:

  (link (:type "file" :path "language.org"  ...))

Here are some links that might be helpful:

As far as I know, it's been around since org-element.el was introduced
in core (2012), and I'm aware of no plans to change it.
