I'm going to have a go at doing this.  I've got gtkmozembed-sharp
compiled up from CVS and it seems to be working OK.  It won't be trivial
and might prove a dead end.  Some things that make me think it's worth
putting in some time on it though include

 * using CSS could really help us with consistency in font sizes, 
   colors, etc.  Makers of renderers could pick from a palette of
   standard UI elements, while still having a lot of design flexibility.

 * we could use JavaScript and CSS combinations to do neat behaviors,
   e.g. click on an expander widget to see more detail etc.

The Epiphany and Galeon guys must have solved the mozembed drag & drop
problem at some point, so I'll bug them to see what can be done.
