We are currently investigating allowing experimental flags to be set via capabilities, just a thought.

Subject: Re: New Session parameters

Irrespective of the discussion about desired and required capabilities, I would like to standardise a subset capabilities/parameters that can be provided to browsers corresponding to the items likely to be used by more than one browser. In particular, I am thinking:

args - command line arguments
binary - browser binary
profile - a base64 encoded profile to use?

Obviously there would still be browser-specific settings, but standardising common ones is useful because it allows new browsers to work with existing webdriver clients without having to write substantive browser-specific code in the client.
