The only reason I haven't yet applied this patch is that I need to rewrite 
the entire sandbox stuff anyway to refactor it for CSP, and I don't want 
to do the work twice.

Once I do apply it, I will naturally (as with any patch) try to make sure 
it matches existing implementations. Unfortunately I can't test IE10 since 
I don't have a way to run it.

Since implementations have already gone ahead and implemented this feature 
without the spec being updated for it, despite the feature really not 
being that important (why are we even encouraging bad UI like popups at 
all, let alone in a sandboxed environment?), it really doesn't seem urgent 
for the feature to be specced, which is why I have prioritised other 
matters above this one.

HTH,
