Okay, I should have been clearer about my real concern.

How does Tabulator register an identity with the browser, if at all? I 
assume not, based on the thread below, and your comments above.

If Tabulator is going to steer stuff into a data space via its host 
browser, it should register an identity which is clearly what I believe 
is about to happen (again based on the edit related  comments below).

My concern is about the human using the browser with a plugin that can 
write to data spaces. Less so the mechanics of client side SSL 
verification. Just trying to understand the root cause  of a SPARUL into 
a resource that ends up in a data space, unknowingly etc..
