Well, I'm reluctant to contradict someone of Shlomo's stature, but index
entries don't follow the standard hypertext behavior as he described it.
The index term is never part of the active area. 

I can't fully explain this, but I'm sure the behavior is deliberate. I
suspect it derives from this fact: In your index doc, each index entry
is a single pgf (e.g., Level1IX), but in the reference page spec, the
page number portion is defined as a separate pgf, IndexIX. 

Behind the curtain, I suspect the active area is initially limited to
the IndexIX pgf boundaries, and it retains that limit when IndexIX is
merged into the LevelxIX pgf containing the index term.
