--- Not neccessary. Imagine a page which shows a line "last temperature=100", 
and an image "temperature.gif", which shows temperature for last 10 seconds.
These are LATEST data, it would be crazy for developer to show timestamp in
the name of gif file. Thus, if temperature (and gif) changes each second,
lynx fails to show correct (syncronized)  line and picture. You right, no
relation to POST.

To summarize, i see at least three situations where a loading pictures
at the same time as text may required:

1) Slow connection, when page expire quickly.
2) not allowed to reload page or its part.
3) real time processes shown on page (like temperature from above example, 
or stock quotes mentioned).

If these situations are rare or not - difficult to say. The only clear: 
in the future the fashion on dynamic real time pages will grow up.

Adding a feature "-download_all_at_once" with proper cache would solve this.
