Prohibiting third-party embedded content would disable media embedded in
blogs.

6) Admit that iframes and 3rd party embedded content are broken by 
design. Eliminate the iframe element completely, and set browsers to 
*never* load content or communicate with any site except the primary URL 
of the page. No 3rd party cookies, no 3rd party images, no 3rd party 
frames, no 3rd party scripts, no 3rd party nothing. Everything on the 
page comes from the same host. No exceptions.

Simple. Secure. Easy to understand. Easy to implement.
