You can do a scattershot sampling using multiple candidate points within the rect and apply whatever heuristics you want to choose a node.  I'm also not convinced that we should be complicating core hit testing code in this way, since I suspect this is one of those areas where mobile platforms will each want to do their own slightly different thing anyway.
