Hello everyone!

I think XHR documents should be dead data. If you want it to be alive
and with a window then a frame or popup window seems much more
appropriate. And with that in mind, what features would an alive XHR
documents implement that wasn't covered by frames/popups?

If scripts are allowed, then next we might consider allowing plugins
such as flash. It'd be confusing. At least to me :-p
