Not sure if OP really wanted to do this, but such alternatives have
always existed. Look at gopher for example.

I would export 9p filetrees and mount them in acme. You can use text
files and plumbing if you want hyperlinks.
I very much enjoy reading 9fans that way.

But I admit this not being beauty typesetting.

I don't really get this: Where can we find real typographic style in links?

Perhaps we need a combination of Troff's beauty and web browser's dynamics.
