How does this work for nested browsing contexts? Currently using <iframe  
allowfullscreen> (not in HTML yet) you can fullscreen elements embedded  
via an <iframe>. Would we then have to push the <iframe> element on the  
stack and make its height and width cover the viewport, and then push the  
element in question inside the <iframe> on the stack, or do we want to  
deal with this in another way?

Which pseudo-classes are we keeping? :fullscreen still seems useful,  
:fullscreen-ancestor probably not. What are the new default styles going  
to be?
