[webkit-dev] New feature: Implement command API in webkit

As I'm not sure if we should implement the spec as is. The last time I
checked, no other UA implemented command API, and I don't necessarily agree
with all the design decisions they've made.

For example, I'm not sure if command's state should be directly tied with
the element that defines a command. Also it seems odd that an element that
defines commands can be a part of UI.

In particular, I would not want to see us implementing

I think we should start from listing use cases first.
