It would be really useful if background shapes could link just like the regular boxes, e.g. to show nested relationships.

This can already be done, but you may be reacting to how the software won't try to create a link if you drag a note onto a shape. This is because most often people will want to do that, instead of linking to it. Everything else should be working however. You can drag the shape to the note, for instance, or use the menu commands / keyboard shortcuts to create links, in the Notes menu. For example click the note, then Ctrl-click the shape and use `Notes/Connect With Arrow`. The direction of the arrow depends on which object you click on first in your selection.
