An API for Container Tabs (which makes sense to me, mind you) doesn't
really address the problem of URL manipulation. I guess we could
couple it with not allowing request bodies, which relies on the user
having visited the site at least once, but the attack vector we're
concerned with is mostly sites the user has an established
relationship with I suppose. Maybe that's good enough. Not breaking
URLs is rather nice...
