I think what would be best for Fetch integration is me handing you a
request and you returning a URL or <i title>none</i>. I tentatively
called this hook "determine referrer". That way Fetch can decide when
it wants to expose this information as a header. And that way this is
also a side-effect free invocation which seems preferable.

See for the tentative
hook. Search for [REFERRER].

As for the specifics of what Referrer Policy should do I copied Ian as
HTML currently has a rather evolved set of steps:
We should take those over somehow or Ian needs to do some handling
before invoking the Fetch Standard. I don't really have a real
preference there.
