Enable Panel insertion to links

I'm trying to insert a Panel into a link. To do so, it needs to be custom code. It would be cool to do "out of the box" without custom code.

how about trying the solution described in the following?

im sure there is a reason why the devs have prohibited this

You're probably right. It's not hard to see how it could break a bunch of stuff within the framework.
