Everything else to the side, we do currently call out the 'referer' header
explicitly as something the user agent can restrict above and beyond what
the 'referrer' directive implies. Would it sufficiently address your
concerns to add a note along the lines of "Note: This specification should
not be interpreted as limiting user agents' ability to apply other
restrictions to limit data leakage via violation reports." to the
'report-uri' section of the spec?
