Yeah, the absence of a link is a bug on my part, I'll fix that.

I think the first trace of it is in http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-widgets-20071013/#addressing. After that, people started talking with the TAG I presume (I wasn't in the WG during that period).

Yes, I believe that might be the plan.

Actually, it's been considered before :) http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-widgets-20071013/#embedding
