Interesting how another person saying the same thing I am is suddenly
understandable. Perhaps we don't speak the same language. Or perhaps
communication is failing another way.

I'm assuming that there are more use cases, and more target
communities, for sandboxing other than just weblogging comments and
webloggers. However, the only purpose given for srcdoc was weblogging
comments and webloggers, and that was the only one I addressed. I
don't feel comfortable speaking for an entire community of people, but
I believe that Matt Mullenweg's response,  recorded in the change
proposal, was a good indicator that the community isn't interested,
and is very unlikely to use the attribute.

Now, others may think all of sandboxing is bad, but they should submit
a bug, accordingly.

That the srcdoc attribute is unlikely to be used, seems to me, to be
an irrefutable argument.
