I can't see why pre- and postformatting of HTML is so different if this
is what lua can be used for. As to more internal hooks I see your point.

Actually HTML is nothing but a primitive window toolkit. You can nest
areas, there's all sorts of buttons etc. And also the way that links
shows <select>'s fx is the same as the codepage selection option. So
the difference might not be that big. Would be quite flexible too 
not to mention scripting could make Windows personal menus look 
like ... ;)

Ok now you're asking for it. ;)

If you have a *lot* of pages to keep up with you might want to use
Last-modification-time to notify you when a bookmark has something new
to offer. Ok you can possibly do this already.

Else you could have a search page kind of like mozillas sidebar tuned in 
on your favorite search engine that extracted the results in a separate 
frame. (This goes under 'and such';)
