Comment (by celloexpressions):

 Agree it's not ideal, but it's the best option here. Currently we don't
 provide any path to viewing link URLs, which is something users would want
 to do to check that it's typed properly, remind themselves of where it
 goes, etc. We really need to avoid direct links in the Customizer or other
 places where the link will navigate you away from the customization flow
 and your unsaved changes. Opening previable links in the Customizer
 preview is an awesome enhancement with ideal flow. For other links, we can
 still provide the most reasonable user flow - opening the link, but not
 navigating the page away from the Customizer - which is a bit disruptive
 but allows them to easily get back to the flow they were in.

 In terms of view vs. original, for the original links the link text is the
 original title of the object that the menu item represents (this is taken
 from the admin screen handling). But "original" doesn't make sense for
 manual links that aren't tied to WordPress objects, so those get view.

 On either of those issues, we shouldn't let these hold back this basic
 missing functionality in 4.3, so if you feel strongly, feel free to change
 them, but I disagree. Also, in the future (and this is also my fault for
 not pushing sooner), let's not let a ticket with a seemingly-finalized
 patch sit for 10 days without activity until we're cutting it super tight
 on beta.
