As we discussed previously, we didn’t come up with a use case for overriding the brightness independently of requesting the wake lock. If users want to prevent the brightness change, I think we can avoid the permission prompt and just make it a UA setting (like, “prevent web pages from changing screen brightness”). Apart from some potential battery consumption, there isn’t a real privacy or security risk that would warrant needing a permission prompt, imo.
