That is what I thought: widgets if used as components on some page 
behave as a micro documents - fragments
of the DOM with local style systems rooted to the widget. But it seems 
that this is not the case - that Widgets are
more about free floating frames that live in top level windows on 
desktop(?), something like Konfabulator "desktoplets".
