I remember that Pod tags in the abstract (the NAME section) are displayed raw by search.cpan.org in some places, but the metacpan.org people assure me that they remove them where necessary.

I think it would be more appropriate to link to definitions from the DESCRIPTION section and/or SEE ALSO, rather than right from the NAME.

I'm not pulling this one. I still think headings and such need to be free of linkage. metacpan.org isn't the only consumer of this information---other tools use the information, and breaking a random subset of them seems like it would cause about as much trouble as it saves.

Also, I'm not feeling responsible for linking readers to definitions of computer science terms today. It would be more helpful to document them in a glossary, introduction, or tutorial instead.
