Given that such features are generally implemented for users with, shall we
say, a more emphatic belief in privacy, it seems likely that they would also
not want sites to be able to tell if storage was disabled.

It seems reasonable for the UA to remind the user though ("this site is storing
data, be aware that it will be blown away when you close the browser" or some
such). But that's out of scope for the spec.
