Note that the "by default open in the main content area" thing is not 
spec-compliant at the moment, as far as I can tell.  That behavior is 
just not allowed by the spec.

In addition, there is existing deployed content using the special names 
to target the main content area which would break if the special-casing 
of those names were removed....  so I doubt it'll be removed.
