Well, you also have a problem of people placing their links in the middle
of complex zones so they can kill the main mob right away. If you want
this, then there's no problem :)

To prevent this though, you could simply add a room flag (!LINK) so that
they can't set their link in that room, or even better, create a zone
flag, that if set, prevents people from shifting there.

Or just make shifting cause damage or something to make this not very
desireable :)
