Hyperlinks are useless in print, but people who print PDFs and Web
pages think nothing of seeing them blue and underlined.

hyperlinks that aren't blue and underlined are useless in PDFs.

I can't see any rational argument for cross-reference hyperlinks not
being formatted like other hyperlinks. Logically, they'd pick up the
Hyperlink character style, and if you didn't want them blue and
underlined, you'd remove those attributes from that style.
