Taking a little step back, I think we’re getting stuck trying to force a concrete rule that is barely achievable in native mobile apps (see the links in the header of iOS Mail), onto the web in general.

It’s square-peg round-hole situation (where ‘round’ includes all possible sided-shapes as there are many types of links). 

I appreciate we need to include SCs related to mobile (ahem, small touch-screens), but we could continue to burn a lot of time on this. My suggestion would be to have the caveat-free version at AAA, and include ‘large hit targets’ as a best-practice in the associated doc(s) as Patrick suggested.
