Well, at home I have 14400 modem, but lynx is running on the ISP side.
I think the proposed behaviour would be better than current (I will not
be forced to reload the document without my willing) and yes, it is a
very rare situation so I will not be annoyed by this prompt. If you use
'z' very often you may perhaps configure squid to cache documents
agressively so all unconditional documents will also be cached.
