After a little more searching, it appears not so difficult in terms of 
code, although the fact that it requires recompiling X (I think?) means 
it's a little difficult:

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2004-July/index.html

But if I understand you correctly, even adding 6 and 7 in X would not be 
enough, and buttons 6 and 7 would need to be defined in elinks?  
Although I would think that something like: <Btn6Up>:U\n\ would bypass 
that limitation (assuming default keybindings) along with binding Btn7Up 
to "Left" (although I'm not sure exactly what string this would be).

I think not without losing scrolling or something else...

Thanks for submitting this for me.
