The main thing that seems to be missing from this thread is any commitment
from any browser vendors to actually support any changes in this space. I
would recommend the following steps for anyone hoping to push changes to
Web specifications on this topic:

- Approach Web browser vendors privately, to see if they are interested in
changing their behaviour in this space.

- If you find interest, collect up the use cases that you want to address,
and post them to this list for discussion.

- Collect the input on use cases and try to design a solution that fits all
the important use cases, then send an an e-mail to this list proposing a
basic design.
