I agree with all that with one nit. The user may trust 
https://toplevel.com/ to access their NFC tag, but not 
https://manufacturer.com/. It'd be nice if the protocol doesn't force 
everyone to send breadcrumbs back to the manufacturer. (Clearly the 
manufacturer can force it by only whitelisting themselves, but I don't
 want them to be able to use our spec as an excuse.)

Moving farther afield, we'd want something like [`<iframe 
 to let top-level pages explicitly forward their permission on to 
their iframes. @adrifelt is working on a more generic way to do this.
