Applying pointer-events="none" to the text element might be better
than a transparent rectangle, but the link still wouldn't work ...

A workaround would be to place a transparent rect over the whole
button which is linked (people will have it easier to click on the
link, trying to click on the text glyphs is a bit difficult if the
text is small and thin) and also triggers the animation.
