Unfortunately The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Group, now considers reliance on ECMAScript as acceptable, and has done so, for probably half a decade. In my view that is because it is made up of accessibility consultants and graphical browser developers.

Also note that HTML5 is the product of a coup, by an industry consortium and is not controlled by W3C. W3C wanted a semantically strong language, document mark-up language. WHATWG wanted a language for running graphical applications on browsers, that was defined in such a way that even garbage produced consistent graphical results across browsers.

I don't think that Lynx is anywhere close to HTML5 compliance, because it doesn't parse it in a way that would allow it to use the mandated error recovery.
