I think this will only complicate things even more:
there are many places in docs where we assume form-based menu
without explicit note - options_help.html explain the latter
so old-style menu userse may be surprized one day.
We could not even agree on the naming of two types of option menus...

IMHO, those who use old-style menu know that they are doing
since this is not the default way any more.

'g LYNXCFG:' is not the most comfortable way, just when you haven't another
(or you are fairly avdanced lynx user which is not a default assumption).

agree here.
