Sorry @jyasskin for that, at Logitech we do!! 

Our BLE devices, talking there about existing mice and keyboards, 
implement HID over GATT service, that requires pairing. They also 
expose proprietary characteristic that does not always require 
bonding.

I successfully used web-bluetooth on Mac OS and Chrome OS (with few 
issues due to the stack or pending bugs). I opened an issue on Android
 
[(670281)](https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=670281),
 that led to a discussion with @beaufortfrancois while you were OOO.

Of course  my experience on Mac OS is also that here bonding is 
implicit, and is triggered by system upon insufficient privilege 
error.
