[whatwg] Fullscreen

I wrote up a draft:


Defining when exactly the "fullscreen enabled" flag is set for Document  
objects I will leave up to HTML. As well as defining the "allowfullscreen"  
attribute. Presumably it should be set for Document objects associated  
with the top-level browsing context and descendant browsing context as  
long as their browsing context container has the aforementioned attribute  

If we want to transition from fullscreen when navigating, HTML can define  
that as well, neatly integrated in the navigation section. The "Model"  
section of the Fullscreen specification has an appropriate hook.

I have not added the key restrictions given earlier emails. Unfortunately  
there was not that much feedback on them, but maybe this draft will help  
on that front!

I went with "fullscreen" rather than "full screen" as that seemed cleaner  
and easier to type. I also used "enter" and "exit" rather than "request"  
and "cancel" as they seemed somewhat nicer too. I'm less attached to this  
latter change though.
