Well, its already in beta. To be on the safe side I'll say sometime before
the end of May, give/take a few weeks in either direction.

I would just do that - make a box and have that be the link. Put all the
boxes on their own layer so you can hide/show them as needed. You could
also make the box into a symbol with, say, a map # in the top corner of the
box like in a road atlas. A really enterprising plugin writer could
probably make a custom tool based on a rectangle that automatically creates
the submap from the selected region and assigns the link.
