I hate to say it, but this one :( It's the least worst. 

I don't want a DOMString because in Gecko we generate all the bindings
 from the WebIDL - so not having them in an enum is a pain for us (or 
we will make a fake enum... but then we might get funky behavior)... 
the spec will have to treat the DOMString like it's an enum, which 
would be redundant. 

Worst case, we have the permission enum in its own spec/wiki/register 
- where people have to register their keys (including the Permissions 
API).
