> why does lynx not seem to use this information?

Lynx does use this information, e.g. hitting l for display links 
produces this:

                                                                      List Page

                 List Page (Lynx Version 2.8.1rel.2), [1]help

   References in file://localhost/home/david/inbibe/fred.html

     * [2]sample title

for the following HTML:

<html>
<title>test</title>
<p><a href="alf" title="sample title">Alf</a></p>
</html>

I suspect you may be confusing title with tool-tip and expecting Lynx to
emulate a tool tip.
