The spec already says that this may be disabled, but after going back 
and forth a few times on it, we decided to leave the value of the 
permission to other specs (for a while, we had it as "disabled by 
default" in this spec, this being the consensus of the WG, but we were
 convinced by others that it was better left to other specs, to avoid 
monkey-patching).
A clarification was recently merged: #427 (title is obscure)

So I think that spec-wise, we're fine, but implementations are 
unlikely to conform until we have a mechanism in place for enabling 
the functionality that 1) is implemented and 2) people believe will 
stay consistently specified in the future.

Personally, I'd be very happy to see us close this opportunity for 
mischief.
