RE: Resource Timing

I assume you mean an HTTP header? If so, that sounds totally reasonable.

served from it. That should answer your question?

I look forward to seeing what you come up with Zhiheng. Thanks!

Interesting. Can you expand on the meta header approach?

I assume you are referring to a case where a child iframe is on a
different origin. In that case it would not be appropriate to leak the
timing info for the frame up to the parent. But it sounds like this
meta header might allow the child frame to give permission to leak the
info to the parent?
