There is nothing agreeable about the removal of the text in question.
CSP is meant to be implemented by user agents, and the requirement in
question is there to ensure CSP will not be abused to act against the
interests of the user as part of some kind of digital repression me-
chanism. Clearly, if browsers let CSP interfere with user-controlled
scripts, they become an agent of someone other than the user. If the
text is not restored, someone will have to bring this to the attention
of the W3C Director and the Advisory Committee.
