If add-ons are sandboxed in some meaningful way, not all browser
functionality will be writable with the add-ons API. That is still besides
the obvious bootstrapping problem of providing the add-ons API... by using
the add-ons API? :-)

I understand and support the idea that we wish to deliver parts of the
browser front-end out-of-band. I don't know that we should therefore assume
that the entire front-end is coded on the add-ons API (especially if such
an API were usably high-level).
