           Summary: sandboxing implication for plugins should be rephrased
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/Overview.h
                    tml#attr-iframe-sandbox
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: julian.reschke@gmx.de

"The sandbox attribute, when specified, enables a set of extra restrictions on
any content hosted by the iframe. Its value must be an unordered set of unique
space-separated tokens that are ASCII case-insensitive. The allowed values are
allow-same-origin, allow-top-navigation, allow-forms, and allow-scripts. When
the attribute is set, the content is treated as being from a unique origin,
forms and scripts are disabled, links are prevented from targeting other
browsing contexts, and plugins are disabled."

This doesn't cover the case where a UI might be able to negotiate these
restrictions with a plugin.
