AFAIK, some recent BibTeX styles (plainnat, unsrtnat, abbrevnat, 
all in harvard package, and some in babelbib) have a special 
entry type "@URL{}" to cite web sites or online only documents

But the url field (that is "url={...}" inside and entry) is only 
a proposed extension that some applications already use (Jabref 
and Pybliographic for example) to show interactively the web
document and that can be exported to other formats. It is
supported by the gigantic BibLaTeX (as optional field in all 
entry types) and probably it could be adopted in future versions
of BibTeX, but not at present, or at least I cannot find it
in the documentation: http://bibtexml.sourceforge.net/btxdoc.pdf

In any case, as a html converter, it seems natural that eLyXer 
supports the url field as a link in bibliography entries.
But thinking about it now, probably url field should be
displayed at the end of the entries (after note field that
already is standard in BibTeX) as an "extra" feature.

Of course, the interpretation of the content of "\url{}" 
as a link is *not* a Lyx feature, just an indirect effect of 
hyperref (or url package) in BibTeX, but already it is a recommended
way to provide additional information as web links (specially in
note and howpublished fields), so it is fine that it remains
in wish list.
