FYI, this is documented in release.sgml in an SGML comment:

For new features, add links to the documentation sections. Use </link>
not just </> so that generate_history.pl can remove it, so HISTORY.html
can be created without links to the main documentation. Don't use
<xref>.

<xref> can't be used because there is no text to keep, and </link> ( not
</>) has to be used so we remove the right tag.
