DVI viewers can do it. I'd be surprised if you couldn't do it in PDF, 
just that no-one has. In fact, the hyperref package has the following 

    plainpages: (default is true)
       Forces page anchors to be named by the arabic form
       of the page number, rather than the formatted form.

Seems to me this would be related to the problem at hand.

That will come for sure in Mac OS X 10.4. Preview's functionality 
hasn't yet been implemented as a framework.
