Referrer: change from <meta> with respect to origin

Jonas raised this over on the WHATWG list:

On http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Meta_referrer "always" has an
annotation that it will include a referrer even when going from HTTPS
to HTTP. "origin" has no such annotation. Per the new Referrer Policy
draft it seems Origin Only would need such an annotation. I guess the
question is whether this change in policy is desired or whether they
should be distinct settings.
