you can create a worker from a data URL. It's a special exception on
top of the same-origin policy that applies otherwise, meaning that any
other kind of URL won't work.

That also means that if you inherit the policy you have a problem.
(You won't know all parent policies ahead of time.)

As for javascript URLs, they are a special code path in the navigation
algorithm these days. And since only frames and the top-level browsing
context can navigate they're an error of sorts in workers.
