Hello,

additionally to what Bjoern wrote (I agree 100% with him) tab browsing imho
is of no concern for the Web but a single browser's feature. Although I like
Mozilla, the W3C is not the institute to integrate a single browser's
feature into the HTML standard when it is not of concern for the Web.

Greetings and a good day

Christian
