Wow... Who said backwards-compatibility about HTML5? The current
behaviour of mozilla's about:blank is ages old.

This is going to drastically impact some big web sites on one hand and
more importantly mozilla add-ons all relying on the current
about:blank containing a minimal HTML document. I am not sure _at all_
this is a good idea.
