If widgets are acting like a browser, then they're like a browser, so
yeah that's in scope, and thankfully not something that seems to need
special consideration.

I suppose I just look forward to hearing what we're talking about
here, if it's not, really, something matching the description of the
WebKit browser on an iPhone. If that's really what we're picturing --
this sort of technology, this sort of level -- that feels right to me.
If not, I think it best to describe what we are talking about soon!
