Because the contents of the map, i.e. the links shown shown on the
LYNXIMGMAP: pseudo-page, can come from anywhere - the MAP element can
be in the same document that refers to it (via USEMAP) before the USEMAP
reference, or after it (possibly far way from the reference), or even
in an entirely different document.  So at the point when the USEMAP is
encountered, we don't yet know the list of links (we may, but can't
assume that).
