I believe Justin explanation on this point makes sens, we're not 
interacting *with* the browser, we're interacting with a 1st party

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.
