>>>>> I don't believe it should be up to the document author to distinguish between a page opened up in a new window or new tab, since that is entirely a browser interface issue. Since several browsers already treat _blank in that way anyway, introducing a new keyword doesn't seem particularly  useful.

I would kindly point you to the original proposal linked before (http://forums.whatwg.org/viewtopic.php?t=186) where this has been discussed in quite a great depth.
