Of course not. The FS commit editor knows how to represent a symlink
within the FS. (however the FS design changes over time)

Correct. If you're driving Ev2, then you should not be working with
"special" files. You should be working with the appropriate node_kind
values.

The "old" "special" representation is just that: old. In wc-ng and
Ev2, you work directly with symlinks.
