Another way to read the data is that less than 0.03% of all page loads 
lead to the use of gUM. The fraction of those that come from 
cross-origin iFrames is probably not huge, so the amount of sites 
affected is probably not big.

But I agree that we should get more input. But I think adding "require 
delegation" to the draft could help here, some people read drafts.

It also looks to me that the trend is towards "require delegation", and 
I'd personally prefer us to introduce it earlier rather than later if it 
will eventually happen.
