Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: We don't have to sandbox all media types. HTML and XML are the only
ones that are problematic, and XML doesn't yet have realistic use cases here
(and could in the future be easily addressed by a separate sandboxing type for
XML — I'll let the XML community worry about that).

The reason for having this type is so that someone can host an HTML file
sandboxed in an iframe, yet still be safe from hostile people pointing their
users at unsandboxed iframes pointing at that document. There's no reason to
have the "allow-*" keywords here, they'll be on the iframe.
