That was his point - despite the fact that it *can* be done in flash,
it isn't. Hence the argument in the spec is invalid.
I don't really see what's wrong with having an API for fullscreen. If
they want, user agents could have a preference to disable the
full-screen API if people ever start doing annoying things.
As for the security issue, the 'Press Escape to exit fullscreen mode'
banner works for flash.
