By handled do you mean displayed?  Well, modules and themes work on 
different levels - seperating logic from presentation (separating how 
you get the content from how you display the content).  Your module can 
clobber or change what is in the breadcrumb trail - or add access rules 
to determine if tabs show up - or add additional tabs - but how all that 
is displayed to the user is ultimately up to the theme developer.
