I agree that people will want both sometime.

Great. If that only needs to be implemented in the parser, that sounds
easier than hacking deeper parts of SimGrid. I will take a look, and see if
it is feasible for me to do it (maybe mimicing the implicit links in
clusters). Are there some guide on how to modify/extend the parser?
