[whatwg] Feedback on the Mozilla FullScreen API proposal

Fullscreen support for specific elements is more than just a convenience -
it's fairly common to have multiple elements on a page that could be made to
go fullscreen

If the browser fullscreen API only supported making the entire page
fullscreen, you could make an element fullscreen by making the page
fullscreen and then making the element fill the page.

This is in fact what the proposed API does. It just provides a convenient
way for authors to achieve it.

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
