RE: External Link (Was: Spiral symbol)

To reinforce what Asmus said, it is always better to propose a symbol with a name describing the shape (variant of ‘box with arrow’) and annotation/alias of possible semantic usage. That is common practice and allow to stack multiple usages on a single shape.
This is a much better path for acceptance in the UTC.

So if a generic "external link" symbol isn't acceptable, I definitely see reason for at least the adoption of box-with-arrow, possibly *called* EXTERNAL LINK or something.
Make that: possibly "aliased" or "annotated" as one of the symbols used to indicate an external link.
