I think we should get to a point where all tabs are "content tabs" in 
the sense that they are (almost) just like browser tabs 
implementation-wise, just that those with a 3-pane or message window or 
such have a chrome:// URL and therefore chrome privs and probably XUL 
laoded inside. That would give the possibility to leverage a lot of 
Firefox <tabbrowser> code and to have the tab contents cleanly separated.
The UI tabs with chrome privs should have some way to access stuff in 
the main/parent window in some way though for some global objects and 
similar things, but where we can easily separate and not degrade 
performance or memory use, we should do it.

(And if you see some hidden agenda behind this to make Thunderbird and 
Firefox more similar in some ways, you might not be wrong about it *g*)
