Not really, AFAIK. What you do have is various Collections of different subtypes of PDFObject,
available by means of accessors on PDFDocument. 
I guess the closest you would get without too much effort is to obtain the one you're interested
in, then iterate over its elements and check PDFObject.referencePDF() against the lookup string.
You do have to know the type(s) of object you need in advance, though...

Interesting. Looking forward to seeing more.
