in one of 2011 posts (https://forum.aspose.com/t/76806) I found that you are planning to improve processing of hyperlinks without usage of facade class.
I would say that this is not yet done? Can you please put this on ToDo list as it is weird that in all other components we can access hyperlinks and only in Words additional class is needed.
Btw. this does not work in correct way (see my post https://forum.aspose.com/t/37287).
Thanks in advance,
