The term "chrome" seems undefined, in the document it seems to be implicitly equivalent to the user interface.
FYI: The View Modes specification [1] (currently approaching FPWD) tries to define what chrome is, mentions scrollbars etc.

The term "widget" is used. In order not to confuse a potential reader (aka W3C Widgets), I suggest to change "widget" to "control" or "UI component".

Could the document mention the Widget User Agent as well?
[2] defines the "mini" mode that is without chrome.

Widgets related:
[3] could be used to define some indicator specifying who/how the widget was signed.

What if the installation-related security aspects are controlled by the underlying security policy?
[4], specifically its section 3.2.3 is just FYI.

"Web user agents MUST prevent web content from overlaying chrome. User interactions that are perceived to deal with browser chrome must not be detectable for Web content."
is important for [5] and [6].
