I don't think this is a reliable rule. You included two examples below.
They involve structures of different types. It seems unlikely that there
is a guarantee that the res field of all structures is used in the same
way. Furthermore, this is the context case. What is the purpose of
making the distinction? The user will have to figure out what to do by
hand in any case.

This is not a reasonable answer. Does the rule work correctly or not? If
it doesn't work correctly, it needs to be removed.

I don't see any purpose to providing two links for everything.
