Can the _link file now be renamed to _parent or something specific to
branches, so that it's possible to branch real source links and submit
changes against them?

No, a branch is just a normal link with one patch of type "branch".

Yes? Then I don't understand what what Adrian meant in [1] when saying:

The new mechanism is doing a full copy of the sources, but still trace the
origin via a _link file.

What am I misunderstanding?

Nothing. A link of type branch is a full copy of the source with
a _link file containing one patch element of type "branch".
