Summary: The new 'sandbox' feature on <iframe> should be considered
for removal. It needs a security review, it will be a lot of work to
implement properly, and may not actually solve the problem it is
intending to solve.

More details here:

http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Iframe_Sandbox

I encourage fellow web authors and browser implementers to add their
opinions/comments to that wiki page.

Thanks!

Tantek
