If we add a directive for battery to the feature policy (which is, as @RByers says, pretty simple to do), I think that the sensible default would be to allow use at the top level, *and in any same-origin children*, and block use in cross origin frames.

That's the stance I'm trying to advocate for new policy-controlled APIs, and we're reframing older ones to work the same way. There's really no point in trying to restrict access from same-origin frames, when they can just reach back up through `parent` to do anything they want anyway.
