Sorry for the late reply. Getting to and from TPAC and TPAC itself is  
basically the reason. I hope you understand.

If UAs want to implement such UI I think that should be fine. However  
today F11 allows for navigation and such, which this mode does not.

About your nested-fullscreen proposal, I do not see how

combines with

as supposedly everything on D's stack would be in D. Should  
D.exitFullscreen not just pop one of D's stack and if that stack is empty  
at that point also clear any descendant document stacks? The only tricky  
thing there might be order (of events). E.g. if you have a descendant B  
which has two descendants each with a fullscreen element. I guess you can  
do them based on the stack order of B.
