[whatwg] The <iframe> element and sandboxing ideas

An inline frame is equivalent to an object: the browser displays the content
of the element when it is configured not to support inline frames.  I think
it is possible to tweak current browsers lest they do.  Putting the intended
content inside does not seem to be the right choice.

I was wondering if you could use the content of the iframe as the source 
for the iframe document.

By my testing (FF2, FF3b, Saf2, Saf3, Opera9.2, IE6) it seems that 
current browsers ignore content inside an <iframe>. So this degrades 
safely for HTML.
