Anyone figured out how to use the exempted tagging and existing names and so on to write veritable novels or did I miss the part where that’s prevented?

Maybe there is a limit in the number of “free items” you can use?

If all of these other attachments and Twitter Polls don’t count, why would URLs?

Because there’s no revenue or stickiness benefit to Twitter when your tweet sends visitors to another site. Video and images can be (and are) formatted to keep visitors on Twitter’s site, but until Twitter decides they can get away with framing the destination site within your feed then there’s nothing in it for them.
