Jupyter Notebooks set global style reference style links?

I like using reference style markdown links e.g.

some text about a [thing][link to something]

[link to something]: https://www.link-to-something.com

however it seems that Jupyter notebooks don’t support this, let alone letting me define all of my links in one markdown cell and referencing them in other cells.

How can I achieve this?

I believe for the purposes of markdown rendering, each markdown cell is its own document. You can use that reference syntax within one cell, but references are not shared between cells.

Hmm I mean that makes sense, but it is also kind of annoying if you want to reuse those reference style links throughout the notebook
