Its indeed the inconsistency that makes it feel annoying. In the beginning. We 
are so used to our desktop applications having buttons for links,  that we 
expect to see them everywhere. When we get to a place (Drupal) were we see 
the correct behaviour, we think this is wrong. 

An de-facto standard is still a standard. But not all standards are the best 

So far, Robert, you are the only one that brought up any good reasons for 
having a button. I think if we can get a few more of these valid reasons it 
is worth discussion.

An "I don't like it" is not a valid reason. It a fact. So please people, come 
up with arguments on why to change this back to a button.
