`srcdoc` inherits the origin of the framing doc completely. I'm not sure
that we describe that well in the spec, but I think a `srcdoc` iframe
inside `https://example.com` should match `frame-ancestors example.com`.

Blob, on the other hand, only matches if the `blob:` scheme is whitelisted

That's how I imagine these cases working. If the spec doesn't make that
clear, we should update the spec.
