[development] internal link filter & master filter list

I'm considering writing a simple input filter module to handle  
internal links [1]. It would take paths like node/99 and prefix them  
with the appropriate base_path. I have two questions:

1. Is there an official master list of input filter syntax somewhere  
that I can consult to make sure I don't use syntax that tromps on  
somebody else's existing filters? I was thinking of using something  
like [ilink:<internal_path>] (for internal link).

2. Can anyone suggest an alternate solution to the problem I'm trying  
to solve [1]? On a related note, I believe ideally, the Links package  
[2] should handle internal links as well as external ... not sure if  
that's the intention ... Scott?



[1] There seems to be no supported solution for including robust  
internal links in your content (please educate me if I'm wrong here).  
The problem is to find a way to create an internal link in my content  
that will continue to work correctly without modification (e.g. like  
menu paths do) when I move the site to a new path. See this thread on  
the support list for a bit more background: http://lists.drupal.org/
