No need to fear. I do the same thing all the time, so I'd obviously make sure fish fails gracefully when X is missing. :)

The browser finding code checks if you have the DISPLAY variable set, and if not, it only tries to use text-based browsers like lynx, links, e3m, etc.. Fish also respects the BROWSER environment variable, so you can specify any browser you want.

As to well written man pages, I think they are fine for everything that is smaller than five or ten pages. But after that, you really start missing hyperlinks...
