Also, Dan Parent from OEone noticed that typing chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul in a tab loads mailnews into the tab! Same with Chatzilla (chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul )."

Think of it the other way. Whether a tabbing feature should exist in a particular application should not depend on which window manager the user use.

If a certain application I wrote needs such tabbing feature, can I say "Hmm, most of my users would use pwm, so I'm not gonna add that in."? I think not. Especially since pwm doesn't have a majority of market share.
