In http://forums.whatwg.org/viewtopic.php?t=185 it is proposed that  
authors should have the ability to suggest that links open in new windows  
and new tabs. The suggested solution is to introduce a new browsing  
context keyword "_tab".

Use case for opening a new window with specified size: help popup.

Use case for opening a new window without specified size: print page.

Use case for opening a new tab: links in GReader for later reading.

Demand for this feature: http://www.google.com/search?q=_tab
