So, um, this is the arms race I was talking about.  Aaron says there's
no arms race because the web is loosely coupled and we can do whatever
we want before rendering, and that's true in a theorhetical sense, but
it's outside GM's current capability.

Nik says override innerHTML, yeah, that works in this instance but
there's always n+1 to worry about.

Earlier injection (a la proxy) is the only way to win, AFAIK, but
we're not there.  So GM can be broken.  There are other ways, too.
