However I wasn't talking about fullscreen in my previous email in this
thread. I was talking about full-window. Something that has entierly
different security constraints and something that webpages will be able
to do even if we don't provide an API.
But as I said, I'm fine with leaving full-window to a later version of
the spec if we see there's a need for it.
