Unless I misunderstood something drastically, most of what you
suggest/request is already there in Lynx v2.6 (except not
from a 'live' information page - lots of discussion of that
in the archive initiated by Bela Lubkin's, AFAIRemember,
work on that):

   The 'g' command allows any URL to be viewed. Pressing the 'g'
   command will bring up a prompt asking for a URL. Type in the
   URL that you wish to view. All previously entered Goto URLs are
   saved in a circular buffer, and be accessed at the prompt by
   pressing the up-arrow or down-arrow keys.

Haven't tried multiple bookmarks patch yet, but in addition
to 'goto' info above,
>From file://your/path/to/Lynx_users_guide.html#11 :
   All search words or strings which you have entered during a Lynx
   session are saved in a circular buffer, and can be retrieved for
   re-use by pressing the up-arrow or down-arrow keys at the prompt
for a
   search word or string.

Exactly what happens.  And the buffers are editable too.  I
guess arrow keys are counterintuitive for someone used to
META keys :)
