Have you looked at the new CSS property 'appearance'?[0] As specified it is 
almost completely unusable by SVG, but would something similar help?

And I hate the way those silly OSs don't use Mozilla's ui behaviours :) This is 
one of the parts where "native" becomes difficult. Taking a plugin running 
inside Mozilla, on windows. Which look and feel does it pick? I'd expect 
Mozilla, you'd expect windows.
