Is it (planned to make it) possible to override reader-mode page to implement an entirely different reader-mode implementation? This could basically be an option in the extention’s manifest:

	"chrome_url_overrides" : {
		"reader": "reader.htm"

with the original webpage’s (subject to be read by user in reader mode) HTML code and embedded resources like images being available somehow, e.g. `browser.originalPage.document` could provide access to the original webpage’s document.
