Well, my apologies for mentioning the use-case on the first place. I should
have come to the point at once.
About the 'potential blocking of popup' issue, the client have ordered the
app for themselves, so most probably that's not going to happen, given that
they requested for the 'whole experience'.

I'm kind of new to mailing lists, I'm not here to debate on programming
ideologies and best practices. I just want to share my thoughts on how we
can take CSS forward, and I hope someone could spare a minute for the idea.
I'd insist that you go through my last mail, and let me know your thoughts
on it.

Thanks
Ketan
