Given the current node is a p element, perhaps something like:

  not(text()[normalize-space()]) and
  a[3] and br[3] and

This would return true for a p element if:

 - it doesn't contain text that contains anything other than whitespace
 - it has at least three a and br element children
 - all its a element children's immediately following siblings are br

Sounds as though it would be easier if you changed the XML so that
it's more content-oriented. If it looked like:

  <link href="urlwhatever">Labelwhatever</link>

then you could transform it easily both into the WML and HTML (or
whatever) formats.
