Before we head over to plugin-futures it would be nice if we could write 
down what the requirements are...:

- a plugin needs to be able to signal support for the "sandbox" mode (is 
on initialization sufficient?)

- when the plugin instance is created, the various sandbox related flags 
defined in 
<http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#the-iframe-element> need to 
be passed to the plugin

- the plugin needs to apply the constraints defined by these flags to 
the content it displays

Q: does the set of flags need to be extensible?

Best regards, Julian
