For at least simple cards, if the only default is via *all we probably still want to show the type menu, yes?
So...the only solution for links would be to add the "?type=Basic" by hand?
Aroo? The generated link needs the type param. Isn't that the only issue?
Are you talking about workarounds? If so, then, yes, you could manually generate a link with type=Basic in structure cards if you wanted.
