As we are adding permission plumbing into Chromium for Wake Lock, I would worry that binding wake lock and screen brightness could end up requiring some user consent for something that could be hard to describe (all the alternatives of "this application wants to keep your screen on at max brightness") and also would potentially gate the screen brightness feature behind another feature's security requirements.

If we just want to expose three values, what's wrong with `screen.overrideBrightness(enum BrightnessOverride)`?
