This is an incorrect analogy so irrelevant to the discussion at hand:
this is not something that has recently changed in lynx.

* modify ".lss" files to work equally well on terminals setup with white text
  on black background, or the reverse.  This also required fixing a few places
  in LYsubwindow() and curses_w_style() to make window backgrounds use the
  colors given in the ".lss" default- and normal-colors lines -TD

...and my comment in lynx.lss:

# Setting the normal and default types lets us keep (almost) the same colors
# whether the terminal's default colors are white-on-black or black-on-white.
# It is not exact since the default "white" is not necessarily the same color
# as the ANSI lightgray, but is as close as we can get in a standard way.
# If you really want the terminal's default colors, and if lynx is built using
# ncurses' default-color support, remove these two lines:
normal:         normal:                 lightgray:black
default:        normal:                 white:black

...noting that the default "lynx.lss" was designed for a black background.
