I am starting to see a fair number of things (such as ebooks), which do

And it's not just the a tag.

So, I'm wondering how hard it would be to get lynx to parse that in the
general case as an open and a close, at least for xhtml documents and
possibly as an option in general.

It attempts to do this - with the caveat that that it's not the default.
Look at the XHTML_PARSING setting in lynx.cfg and/or the -xhtml-parsing
command-line switch.  I added those in 2.8.7dev.11 (2008-12-24).
