Agreed on the latter.
On the former, it wouldn't be a problem for websites per se, but the
aliasing needs to happen when a page whose origin is a globally unique
identifier has an about:blank iframe. Or rather, the origin of the
iframe needs to be the _same_ globally unique identifier. In Gecko this
is implemented by simply using the same origin object for both.
Note that in IE the security model around about:blank is pretty weird
last I checked, so I'd want to see some pretty exhaustive tests before
changing Gecko behavior in web-facing about:blank.
