This same discussion always pops up when a new feature might have  
implications beyond the browser window, like d&d, file api, web gl,  
clipboard api, etc.

Features are demanded and the specs need to be written in a way that  
supports most, if not all, of the valid use cases.

If there are possibilities of those same APIs being used to hinder user  
experience, then the user agent must provide options for the user to  
control what the sites do, so it becomes an UI issue. And, such websites  
are few, slim, and have little users.

Now, we can move forward :) Thank you.
