1. Hopefully this interaction will clarify itself when we get around to
rewriting CSP in terms of Fetch. That's on my todo list, it just keeps
getting bumped further down. Working on it.

2. I think our vague plan was to check outgoing requests as well as
incoming responses, similar to what we've ended up with for MIX. That is,
we would attempt to prevent the SW from giving us something for a
particular request that wouldn't have been allowed as an outgoing request.

I don't really understand the issue with `event.default()`. Why does that
passthrough mechanism not work?
