This came up before in the context of security but resource allocation
should be given some thought. I'm not always sure if the people who
design web pages and serve thid party items care about the user's CPU. When we did java ads, this
was a big deal but today it isn't hard to open a window or two and have all resources
used doing stuff unrelated to browsing. Memory, CPU, and IO allocation 
should have some means for monitor if not control. Presonally I wouldn't mind a file 
in /etc/webkit to control this and other stuff. If you are making an alternative
to IE, it may be helpful to remember all the things you don't like about IE and
the importance of features in these other environments..
