The question is what happens for platforms that are NOT as popular as 
Firefox.

That is, if a new browser is created, can it actually view web content 
(including Netflix content)?  If not, that's bad for the web.

Note that this is not an opinion on the proposal at hand, because I 
haven't had a chance to review that proposal in depth.  It it would work 
out of the box for anyone who wants to create a new browser without 
requiring coordination with multiple website owners in the process, 
that's great.
