We've been kicking around some ideas for addressing some of these use cases,
but we've been approaching the problem as giving web pages a way to create a
"lightbox"-like UI using something that's really a popup window under the
covers.  The idea being that popup windows are always rendered "on top" and
they're not subject to interference by the page that creates them.  The
limitation is that they're ugly and difficult for users to manage.  In some
sense, you could address these use cases with a chromeless popup window that
was constrained to the parent web page, much like alert dialogs are in recent
versions of Firefox.

Anyway, we haven't got much past the "hallway discussion" phase, but I think
there's some potential for addressing these use cases.  Of course, we'd have to
do it carefully because these are tricky security issues.
