A pop-up windows position can be controlled from JavaScript and most browsers
give it focus instantly too.

I thought about the idea of rendering the iframe as always on top too. However
this would limit animation (a rotating cube for instance) and other cool

What may be a good compromise is that the iframe would have to be focused
before clicks are sent to it (like a pop-up window), a focused iframe is always
on top and any clicks sent to the iframe are not registered on the outer page.
Browsers could also enforce a minimum size before any content is rendered.

I personally can't see how these restrictions would be any more dangerous than
a pop-up window.
