Just a thought here... for any text/* mimetype that isn't specifically
mapped to an application, should Lynx offer another option, such as:

    text/foobar  D)ownload, V)iew, or C)ancel

Since it is supposedly a text type, offering to view it as a text file
would be a nice option.  Probably this wouldn't be appropriate for
application/*, image/*, etc.
