No, that's wrong on two counts. One, HTML5 doesn't change the legal status of
this whatsoever, and two, it really already isn't possible. The reason no
collapse has occurred is that it isn't possible, not that it isn't legal --
plenty of people try incredibly hard to do it every single day. In fact there
is an entire industry set up around exploiting the few bugs that sometimes get
out that allow it in some way (known as cross-site scripting).
