@anssiko made a few comments on that implementation design doc directly. There's **a lot** of considerations to be taken in account for this permission-related work which is proving more thorny by the minute.

I think one of the key issue here is that the permission spec wasn't really designed with such use cases in mind. That combined with the fact that no one is considering working on the permission spec a priority slows progress down significantly.

The input from the afore mentioned design doc, related implementer feedback, and post TPAC considerations given some of the security work happening around features (notably revoking permissions, allowing certain features in nested iframes, etc.) has also forced me to reconsider a number of things.

It's complicated! :)
