A brief scan of the specification shows three places where we could use an `AbortController` instead of a dedicated "stop" method,

* [`stopNotifications()`](https://webbluetoothcg.github.io/web-bluetooth/#dom-bluetoothremotegattcharacteristic-stopnotifications)
* [`unwatchAdvertisements()`](https://webbluetoothcg.github.io/web-bluetooth/#dom-bluetoothdevice-unwatchadvertisements)
* [`BluetoothLEScan.stop()`](https://webbluetoothcg.github.io/web-bluetooth/scanning.html#dom-bluetoothlescan-stop)

The latter two have not been shipped in any implementation and so are reasonable candidates for updating. We will likely have to continue supporting `stopNotifications()`.
