As I looked at how to fold in Gregory's comments, I'm wondering if the 
checkpoint needs to be part of "Guideline 5. Ensure user control of user 
interface behavior" where many of the checkpoints already concern 
opening viewports.

5.X Provide user control of spawned windows

1. Allow configuration so that users must explicitly consent before 
additional windows are spawned.

2. Allow configuration so that spawned windows are always fully 
functional user agent windows (i.e. resizable, scrollable, available to 
extensions, incorporating user display settings, etc.) and ignore 
content requests to reduce window functionality (e.g. fixed size, hidden 
scrollbars).

Cheers,
Jan

PS: I've also done by other action item, to update the Wiki for 3.1.
