Group announcements - why no links?

No seriously, people can post links in comments just fine, but we can't post links in announcements. What is reasoning behind that? It would be much better if group admins could post links in announcements, and if it was possible to disable link posting in comments. (group settings obviously)

How come? It's kinda to prevent links in announcements while they are allowed in comments.

You can still add links in comments while links in announcements are not parsed

It doesn't make sense

Is it going to change eventually?
Also, is text formatting tool going to be add too?
