I'll put in this language, provisionally:

  For user agents with a visual user interface, all user interfaces
  exposed for these interactions SHOULD visually replace the Web
  content currently displayed to the user.

Please consider this as a strawman that we can refine along with
similar language in 5.4.1.

("full-screen" is far too easily misread as a far more onerous
requirement.  However, I'll note that it is in fact the interaction
mode for things like Cardspace.)
