I believe that I got you beat in the number-of-links department

Last year I produced a french grammar reference, at a total of 200k words, with 1123 sections and subsections, 5600 real-life examples, and more than 4100 cross-references (which of course needed to be links in the epub). I wrote some Javascript to do most of the heavy lifting with generating links in Indesign, but that was some file. The end result was very usable, though, and it's probably the one epub I've made that I'm most proud of.
