In case I don't make the call, a brief comment on the browser  
lockdown mode proposal:

Our experience has been that too many permutations of configurations  
can make it very difficult to make reliable and secure software.  It  
makes it even more difficult to test that software.  Of course we  
have to have a little pain for any gain, but I imagine the first  
response web designers will make is to put prominently on their site  
"Please disable lockdown mode in your browser by clicking X, Y, Z and  
pressing OK."  I can't imagine any browser shipping without the  
ability to disable it somehow.
