Yes, I discussed it internally a bit and I do not think we are interested in the generic permissions.request().

A few things we could do:
- add a permission request api to this spec
- drop the api altogether but there are some legit use cases so it would be unfortunate.
- maybe require a user gesture when adding the event listener (and then we’d show a prompt). Avoids over prompting and adding any api.
