Actually, I'll tell you what would be useful in Lynx - and that's a
keystroke command which submits the current form even when there's
no submit button in it.

Most likely some idiot will have coded a button which points to
"javascript:document.form.submit();" or a trivial script to verify
the arguments before submitting.  Or a menu which submits when changed.
You'd still be able to use these in Lynx if only there were a way to
press the non-existent submit button.
