I've attached a document that I made last week. It's (currently) an lmtx 
only feature. In acrobat, the 'marked' areas (some tracing option) are 
the hyperlink. I have no clue how useful this is, maybe for maps or some 
educational setting. I had it on my agenda to play with it anyway. I 
don't think that viewers other than acrobat support it (even if it's 
already quite old pdf stuff; they should anyway fall back on the 
rectangle) but who knows ... I only tested sumatra (the okular that I 
have doesn't even seem to handle the links at all). It's not really 
efficient in bytes because it's (I think) meant for another usage. As 
with more features in the pdf format I think it might have started as 
some hack, but it's documented so ...
