Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: We can't allow plugins to be used in sandboxed content until plugins
are aware of the sandboxing mechanism, such that browsers can only enable
plugins that respect the sandboxing. Right now, enabling plugins would be
essentially equivalent to just removing the sandbox attribute (possibly
literally -- there's no reason that I can see why a plugin couldn't just go
ahead and remove the attribute and reload the iframe).

Once the plugin APIs are sandbox-aware, it would make sense to provide such a
feature.
