I think it would be interesting to hear from implementors whether they are interested in implementing this feature, and from Web developers whether they are interested in using sandboxed iframes in general, or sandboxing combined with srcdoc in particular.

Note: @sandbox is implemented in WebKit and is currently shipping in Chrome and Safari. @srcdoc is not currently implemented. I do not know what the WebKit community's security experts think about @srcdoc.
