KDE, by the way, does not follow XDG either - in Fedora19 it creates these


...bearing in mind that Fedora19 is inevitably going to have some package tweaks
made to use whatever scheme GNOME happens to use at the moment. 

Lynx isn't normally part of a desktop environment (as a rule, support for 
shortcuts is rather poorer than that provided in Windows).  Instead, it's an 
run from the command-line (like ssh, which also has its ~/.ssh in Fedora19).

So... at most, what I see is that if packagers wanted to massage Lynx's 
into XDG hierarchy and ran into some awkward part where it couldn't be tweaked 
I did for the packaging of the documentation), I'd suggest adding a configure 
to turn on as-needed tweaks.  Most of Lynx's users would not need or want this.
