It's pretty unlikely that user agents will show UI completely controlled by the
web site. Someone might be able to provide one but I can't think of an example
where this is possible today. In fact, things are going in the opposite direction
as we try harder to make it difficult for web sites to spoof users (imagine the
web site that says "You've won a vacation - click Yes to accept").
