I think we're talking about different things.  I'm not talking about the 
externally exposed things like document.form, etc.  I'm talking about the 
way things like forms are implemented internally to Lynx.

At the moment, as far as I've been able to tell, you can't just say "I want
the submit URL for form X" in Lynx now.  Nor can you easily get the value
of a form field, or any of the other things you might want to do with forms.

With internal Javascript'd objects, you'd just say something like

  js_getproperty(FormObject, "action", mystring);

I'm not sure that it would help anything other than implementing Javascript,
but it feels simpler than the current situation and that can't be bad.
