True, but native apps can also use it today with no indication. When we look at shipping this or something like a more specific geolocation or, then it will require special UX or similar and we might also restrict it to just keeping the CPU alive for a little while (say max 5 min) etc.

There are definitely valid use-cases like navigation which won't work today. Android apps can even turn on the screen from a system wake lock.

Background sync cannot use it, it can be used in dedicated workers, not service workers - or at least that is the indention
