World Quest chat links is broken

If I print, the link works as intended, is yellow and I can click it.
If I for instance, link the quest to my party or just "SAY", it shows as plain text:

print ("|cffffff00|Hquest:41145:110|h[Water of Life]|h|r")
SendChatMessage("|cffffff00|Hquest:41145:110|h[Water of Life]|h|r", "SAY", "Common")

The result with print() and SendChatMessage:

The server probably converted the link to text because it felt you shouldn't be able to link it in the first place.

I've run into this in beta constantly, sometimes quest links work, sometimes they don't. Most of the time, it's WQs, but I've had this happen a couple times on regular ones.

For reference from #wowuidev
