My understanding is that main issue with iframe isn't the external  
source but that the view port establishment.

I wonder if this issue could be solved on the layout/CSS level by  
providing a way to make the height of an iframe depend on the actual  
height of the root element of the document loaded in the iframe. That  
is, would it be feasible to make the iframe contents have the layout/ 
UI feel of a part of the parent page while keeping the DOMs and  
script security contexts separate?
