jyasskin has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/web-bluetooth:

== Consider allowing UAs to omit navigator.bluetooth on platforms that
 don't support it. ==
Some platforms don't support Bluetooth LE at all. Others support it 
conditionally depending on whether a radio is attached. 
[`getAvailability()`](https://webbluetoothcg.github.io/web-bluetooth/#availability)
 covers the second group of platforms, and can be used to cover the 
first, but it might be simpler for developers to be able to treat 
no-Bluetooth platforms they same as they treat no-Bluetooth browsers.

https://github.com/WICG/web-share/pull/8 and 
https://github.com/whatwg/notifications/issues/81 propose this 
strategy for two other specs.
