My use case is a large file of notes that I want to typeset frequently as I update it, so that won't work for me unless there's an easy way to pass a filtered version of the file to the exporter.

Personally I'd prefer a customization option to change this behavior, but if that's not doable I'll work around it. Might be worth putting a note about it in the manual, though.

(I can't find the previous discussion of this, so sorry if I'm retreading old ground.)

Actually, wrong. It was discussed already, and the current trend is to
throw an error instead of silently dropping the link.

Can't you just filter it out before exporting?
