This is actually what I ended up doing. A 'whole fingertip tap' seems to be the best way to hit those things. Still massively inconsistent though, and it doesn't solve the problem that footnotes at the top simply don't work because of the kindle menu area.

I ended up returning my Paperwhite. Looks like I'm sticking with the Kindle Keyboard for another year or two

Selecting the footnotes on my KK doesn't interrupt me too much, it's not ideal but at least it works 100% of the time.
