The traditional way for "the web" is to do the latter, but I think by now we've seen why we might have wished otherwise.

We've talked about this in the past.  There are two aspects that we've
considered: whether to prompt for access to isolated streams (we
decided that this could be considered creepy), and whether to default
to isolation.  I don't think that we can realistically default to
isolation at this point.
