I really do not understand where your confusion is coming from, but you seem to
be having difficulty comprehending what the spec actually means.  I'm not
really sure how I can clarify the issue further to help you understand why
HTML5 is not granting any permission as you have tried to describe and why
there is no security issue here.

What kind of activities you think the phrase "the user's current activity" is
referring to?  It's actually meant to refer to activities the user is
performing on the site or in the web application. i.e. things that the site is
aware of.  It *does not* refer to activities that the site cannot possibly

For example, a user of an online calendar application be checking for upcoming
parties in a particular month that meet come search criteria.  In this case,
the user's activity is searching and filtering calendar events—something the
web application will know based on the user's actions—and the application may
mark the relevant events.
