I'm not sure what you're saying here.  The browser provides access
control for web applications.  This is already true in lots of places
-- like geolocation and network access, to name recent ones.  Even if
all native applications can access particular hardware as far as the
system is concerned, it certainly doesn't follow that the browser can
expose the same privilege to web applications.
