@marcoscaceres Please note the concrete privacy-vetted mitigation 
strategies discussed in this issue are generic, not specific to this 
API -- they apply more broadly. I feel giving up would set a wrong 
precedent. My personal motivation is to identify concrete proposals 
reviewed by domain experts, so that we can collectively continue to 
ship powerful features on the Web in a privacy-aware manner also in 
the future.

Looking at the current browser market share, especially on mobile 
(bigger than desktop browsing now) where the use cases are the most 
powerful, recent pull offs have practically no real-world impact.

I'm all in for improving the spec together with implementers who don't
 feel like giving up on powerful features is the way to go.
