While I'm fine with the substantive change of using the Permissions API, the privacy analysis text in Section 4 (n.b. I'm using section numbers from the diff linked above, which seem to differ from the current section numbers) should explain the solution as well as the problem.  e.g. "This API makes use to of the Permissions API to ensure that users have given express permission for the sharing of location" and maybe add some words about the granularity of that permission?

(In other words, the privacy considerations was stripped down too far here.)

@magnus-git, do you concur?
