Just to note, this proposed rendering would be at variance with Lynx's 
current behaviors when handling embedded content.

For OBJECT elements, the OBJECT is not rendered. Any fallback content 
within the OBJECT tag does get rendered.

EMBED elements are rendered as [EMBED] but this is just a line of plain 
text, not a link to give an option to download the resource in question.
