That's only superficially true.  To give a concrete example, Google
Hangouts operates at https://mail.google.com and
https://plus.google.com, but it's the same application in every
meaningful sense (aside from perhaps the strict web origin sense).  I
imagine that Google access the same server-side state to run the

consolidated.  In that case, the origin is completely insufficient to
identify the app.  And Hangouts isn't the only application on those
