Well, the possibility of having, say, things on top of the form controls without the form controls shining through. Or form controls inside translucent divs (the _div_ is styled, not the form control).

On some platforms, these things cannot be done with native widgets. On others, they can be. Browsers that target the latter should be free to use native widgets.
