I am happy to apply the above proposal (indeed I reopened the bug recently
because we now have two implementations, and the reason I had marked the
bug LATER was lack of implementation experience). It would be good if it
could be made clear that I would still be able to fix up minor details
later. In particular, this part of the spec is likely to need refactoring
soon to make it easier to reference from the CSP specification. Purely an
editorial matter, but it would likely involve changing the wording for all
the keywords, including 'allow-popups'. The black-box normative aspects
wouldn't be affected.
