perhaps i should have been more clear in my definition of mimic or whatever.

The user should be able to easily determine whether content belongs to a webpage or the os.

This does not preclude a browser from allowing the user to choose to allow something to imitate the os.  However, no web content should be allowed to require the user to 'opt' into this feature, it must be entirely the user's decision.
