Da Capo. Re: <keygen> being destroyed when we need it

Apparently Mozilla intends adapting Firefox to the (easy to verify) whish by
the market, namely being able COMBINING the power of the Web and App worlds:

The motives for the true/open Web are noble but the downsides outweigh the
advantages, and also leads to unnecessary friction.

Using Native Messaging interested parties can for example develop the
<keygen> of their dreams.

The only problem left is that the Native Messaging concept Mozilla is
building on, IMO feels more like a "workaround" than a solution.  Since
the defenders of the true/open Web do not want to deal with extensions,
I guess this is as good as it gets?
