Could Portal be an alternative to embedding in the future?

ZDNet is touting this as new, but the majority of the discussion began at the 2018 Chrome Summit. Might there be an advantage to using <portal> to embed discussions and ‘seamlessly’ transition users between content and discussion?

It’s already in Chrome 76, has anyone experimented with this yet?

What existing problem is this trying to solve? I am unclear.

I believe he is suggesting that technology be used in the source of discourse

That is not what I asked.

Iframes, apparently.

We will not be adding support for portals anywhere until other browser vendors start implementing it.

The idea according to the spec is to enable seamless navigation to oneboxed content.

I would say this is multiple years out before we even consider adopting this for specific oneboxes, it is a chrome experiment for now.
