Embed: resizable iframes

I am a developer at Weezevent (, a ticketing solution.

I am currently developing an oEmbed provider to embed our registration widget in WordPress, that returns a "rich" embed containing an iframe with a fixed height.

It technically works but our content height changes as the user progresses through the registration steps, so when our content is small it leaves a big gap between the end and the next paragraph in Wordpress; and when our content is big the iframe becomes scrollable. In both cases it's not looking good and not mobile friendly.

Our default integration uses a js script to monitor the content size and dynamically resize the iframe.
You can check an integration using our js script here
Scroll down to the "Déjà commandé" part and fold the categories or select a quantity and click "Suite" to trigger the resizing.

I was wondering if you'd be willing to integrate such a script in Wordpress and enable it for iframe embeds ?
I'm sure it would also be useful for other oEmbed providers.

I know we could write a plugin to allow unfiltered embeds, but the vast majority of ours users are not technical and asking them to install a plugin will scare them off.
(I'd also take being added to the official embed whitelist, but we don't fit the "globally well-known" requirement.)
