Ah, I feel like there are certain images that might get deleted from
Commons just because they don't "contribute to wikipedia articles".
Maybe a special example but still:
Recently mapped a construction zone for a residential area and took a
couple photos. Those might not "belong on Commons" according to their
moderation team.

As mentioned on the linked wiki page, you can escape a semicolon by

It's a solution, but still doesn't solve the problem of long urls clogging
up one tag.
Definitely if you have long urls because of unique hash/id's
(extreme example: IPFS urls:

)
