There's no such thing as "document.requestFullscreen()" in the current
draft.  (It was suggested in passing on IRC, but it hasn't been discussed
here.)

There's definitely a reason that the fullscreen API can't act like
F11-fullscreen.  F11 causes the whole browser window to be fullscreened,
affecting all tabs in the window.  If you change tabs or create a new tab,
the browser window stays fullscreened.  It isn't exited on navigation.
Pages should no more be able to affect F11-fullscreen than they can resize
the browser window.

It's a completely separate fullscreen model from this API.  This spec
doesn't need to talk about it at all.
