As another data point, the aforementioned Jetpack addon for Firefox
actually *does* run in a hidden page.  "about:jetpack" is *always*
present while the add-on is installed, but hidden if you haven't
explicitly pointed a tab at that url.

This doesn't allow it to persist outside of the browser, but it does
allow it to persist outside of the page.
