Re: [Bug 22337] When does the light come on?

To me "nascent" describes a process, a becoming, so that a thing cannot 
be "nascent" for very long.  Given that page can sit in this state for 
hours, it's probably the wrong metaphor.  Can we shorten the sentence to:

The browser MUST provide an indication whenever the site has permission 
to access devices without further interaction with the user.
