Pretty much, yeah. This is somewhat like the issue I raised about  
<title> and favicons, though - the web browser has control, it's just  
chosen to not exercise much of it. :)

Or user agents in a low-chrome (ie: fullscreen) mode. That's fine.  
This is status quo for most web browsers in default form. Even most  
mobile browsers (well, mobile full-on web browsers) start with some  
amount of chrome and then vanish it once the page loads.
