How do you style the element that went fullscreen without it? (We should  
maybe consider naming the specification "Element Fullscreen" to more  
accurately reflect what it is about.)

It's still not entirely clear to me whether the styling part of Fullscreen  
is what we want though. It needs to be reconciled with the ideas for  
<dialog> somehow as hober brought up on this list ages ago.
