Tim who?
Additionally, requirements that java script still work from the keyboard remain a part of w3c rules.There are editions of Lynx that can submit from script links. I realize that can differ from Java scripting but still.
One  w3c resource I like is
who details all the issues with Javascript especially void zero links.
Seriously though I wonder how many sites are simply a product of someone taking a tool adding stuff and stirring?
In that case  better web creation tools would help as well.

What's really unfortunate about all of this is that javascript can do useful tasks on websites in the house cleaning department and had it been restricted to that kind of work and not blocking accessibility for all browsers it would not have attracted the well earned controversy and lightning it has attracted. The producers of websites are responsible for misusing javascript. I don't know what Tim Burnersley's position on html5 is but it's been around for long enough for him to have developed one.

 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

 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
