Do we dat games like this? It is a game that has been made after the 'death' of the Lynx, but it came out on cart. You can still buy it BTW:

I think it's like Beggar Prince for the MD, we can dat this if the author give permission.

Songbird Productions is a well-known company and as far as I'm informed they released licensed games for the Lynx-system. It's late but I can't see any official "death" date of a console. A long as it is official I don't see any reason to not include games like that - especially since some of their releases are protos of formerly unreleased games.

A question about that Beggar Prince: Isn't that just a translated japanese release? And without license?

It's a translated taiwanese game and it's licenced. They bought the game source code and right to distibute it.

It's just a matter of whether the game was licensed (companies stop giving out licenses for new games which renders a console dead) or not.
