Pdfpages.sty is just a wrapper for \inlcudegraphics and
\includegraphics relies on pdftex. Unfortunately pdftex
does not preserve links of inserted pdf documents.

There are a lot of links for which it would not make sense
to preserve them, but not for all. Especially URL links:


  /Subtype /Link /A << /Type /Action /S /URI /URI (http://www.tug.org) >>

If one wants to insert a pdf document, which contains such
an URL link, this kind of link should IMHO be preserved.
But until now pdftex cannot do this.

Find someone to write a patch for pdftex.
