Just for the record, I was the whiner :-)

I think it would benefit those users unable to upgrade to the very
latest version of Lynx if webmasters made their pages work correctly
with fairly recent versions, particularly if the Lynx "workaround"
allows illegal urls.  But I will whine to my system admins to upgrade,
in any case.

Oh, fine, if you happen to like being me which personally I don't.
