It's currently possible to embed a link in the description section (and some other sections) of an embed with the [display name](http://url.com) syntax. However, that only works for links to http pages and not other URI types. For example, it isn't possible to link to a calendar data URI object for example: data:text/calendar;charset=utf8,BEGIN%3AVCALENDAR%0AVERSION%3A2.0%0ABEGIN%3AVEVENT%0ADTSTART%3A20200528T225542Z%0ADTEND%3A20200528T225542Z%0AEND%3AVEVENT%0AEND%3AVCALENDAR
Similarly, it isn't possible to link to an ftp://uri or other types of valid address that modern browsers understand. This is coming up in particular because I'd love to have my bot be able to include calendar event links in an embed supporting both Google and ICS formatted links. The google one works since that's a standard http URI, but the ICS format (used on iOS, Outlook, iCal, basically anything that isn't Google Calendar) doesn't work.
