Hrm. I thought the difference was clear, but I can understand how it could
be confusing. Changing to something explicit like 'no-referrer' sounds
pretty reasonable. We probably need to keep support for "None" around for
the meta tag, as it's currently used in WebKit and Blink.


Anne: Would you like to change the "none" keyword in Fetch as well?
