That doesn't seem at all relevant to me. Many Nordic banks work without any Java, ActiveX or NPAPI craziness. (I use three different banking services that work just fine with any vanilla browser without any plug-ins or extensions.)

The infamous Danske Bank applet was disassebled (http://kks.cabal.fi/SampoApplet), and it seems it's more about fingerprinting the user's computer than about anything remotely related to the type=ink proposal.
