The possibility of examining the contents of cross-origin documents by
attempting to load them with different known hashes and then
triggering the reporting behavior (or noticing that navigation in an
<iframe> has not taken place) seems like a fairly significant issue,
right? It feels that it would make it considerably easier to
fingerprint user state across a large number of sites, compared to
previously demonstrated approaches.

What would be the behavior of clicking on a non-download link with the
integrity parameter specified? What would happen if this link is
opened in a new window? It seems that it may be difficult to behave
consistently in this case (e.g., how to handle right-click + "open in
an incognito window" in Chrome?).
