I can definitely see a need for limiting a scan-everything mode, but 
in that case perhaps the filters should be expanded a little bit. 
Sorry, I'm new to the community here so maybe I haven't seen all the 
documentation and specs, but according to: 
https://webbluetoothcg.github.io/web-bluetooth/#dom-requestdeviceoptions-filters
 the only filters are for service-UUID's and names. Having one for 
manufacturer UUID would be nice.

One implementation I like very much, on Android, is: 
http://altbeacon.github.io/android-beacon-library/javadoc/org/altbeacon/beacon/BeaconParser.html
I understand that can be too much to pack into a web-spec, but some 
way to specify flexible filtering would be nice.

For my purpose, I have to pack my sensor data and other info into an 
advertisement. It would be nice to not need to use additional, 
precious, advertising bytes on things like service UUID's or names.
