I was planning on a sub-section on spoofing the chrome. This sub-section
would include:
 * Configuring the browser to have no chrome, and then displaying spoof
chrome
 * Maximizing the browser window, or even making it larger than the
display, and displaying a floating DIV tag that emulates a full browser
window
 * Bringing up the attacked site in a normal browser window and
overlaying a frameless pop-up window over the login form.
 * Visually extending the chrome by putting matching spoof chrome in the
page area, but directly under the real chrome.

For each of these, I think the weakness can be made clear with a couple
of sentences, and a screenshot. I typically think of a use-case as being
a multi-step interaction. What is the convention in W3C documents? Are
these points typically made with a use-case, or with a short text
description?

Also, Thomas pointed out that we must not use any trademarks in a W3C
document. What's the policy on including screenshots taken from
trademarked applications?

I wasn't planning on including any text on overwriting the chrome by
exploiting browser bugs. These should be out of scope, though our
malware section isn't clear on that point yet.
