reference (internal to one sheet) issues
if you link =$page1.$A$1 to page2 cell a1 changes to the cell update immediately but changes to comment content, size or position never to regardless of global localc general updating setting

That's because what you have here is not a link but a formula. Formulae evaluate values only and do not carry over other aspects of a cell - formatting and so on. Remember that your formula, referencing only a single cell, is a special case of something more general. What would you want to happen if your formula were instead =Sheet2.$A$1+Sheet3.$A$1 ? The destination cell couldn't inherit aspects of formatting from both of two different cells. Note that a formula such as this, which happens to reference another sheet or sheets in the same spreadsheet, is no different from one that operates only within a single sheet.

On spreadsheets with only internal links the "Edit/Links" is ghosted.

Again, that is because these are formulae, not links.

it would be nice to have a hotkey to update INTERNAL links including row height, comment window content, position and size

You would break most people's idea of how a spreadsheet should operate if you achieved this.

I trust this helps.
