There’s one very great thing they missed, though.

For example, the Groundspeak geocaching website used to have a page
load size of over 1 MiB (HTML alone), I believe they cut a hundred
or two off it by now but this is still ridiculous, yet most of the
pages renders well by lynx.

I didn't find the large 'Groundspeak geocaching' page you referred to.
So I tested using the Norwegian news-paper
(which BTW looks awful in Lynx compared to most NYT pages). has a front-page of 2.6 MByte (HTML only)
Testing with my Opera Mini browser on my Nokia phone, the front-page size
was 236 kByte (89% reduction) thanks to "Opera Mini Mark-up Language".
The page started slowly, but rendered acceptable on the 37x55mm screen.
