I think such a feature would be quite interesting, but I don't think we
should persue it in HTML5 at the moment.
If this is something that there is interest in developing, I recommend
bringing it up in the W3C Web Apps working group in conjunction with
browser vendors. Experimental implementations would go a long way towards
demonstrating what is possible and what should be specified.
