Every punctuation mark deserves its own page but of course the link should be to the singular [[square bracket]]. It's not shallow to describe all the uses of a square bracket in legitimate English usage, because this will help to convince a person convinced that {{{ [this is a link] }}} that it absolutely cannot be one. If you are really worried about that, make [[diplomatic text]] a redirect to the [[square bracket]] page and explain it all at once. Keeping separate redirects, I hope you know, is the best way to differentiate reasons to link to one page...

You can summarise the English typography patterns on a single page easily. It's really not that much text if written well. It's usually only about 1/10 of most style guides. Other people can include similar pages for other languages too. World is a little bigger than just Canada, after all.
All the discussion is open and publicly available since the very beginning, I've left you some links on [[Talk.RadomirDopieralski]]. The {{{*Reasoning}}} pages are just summaries of the most relevants points of these discussions, for those who are not interested in working on Creole, but would like to know. I guess they should include links to the actual discussions too.
See [[Meatball:ShallowPage]] to see what I meant by "shallow".
