I agree the question is a valid one.  But as the group has already discussed "meaningful interaction" as a condition to move a widget from a 3rd party context to a 1st party context, why wouldn't that apply in this case?  If you agree, then web browsers would be considered 1st parties and are largely out of scope for the TPWG specification.

Vincent raised an important question: What happens if the browser 
phones home. I hear all saying this is out of scope and will be 
determined by the applicable jurisdiction. Fine. But it was very 
important to raise that question IMHO.
