Sorry, but I don't understand how a service worker can even access
non-secure resources. In particular, since only secure origins can use
service workers, any use of fetch() by a service worker to fetch a
non-secure resource will fail due the pre-connect blocking in section 5.2.
Could you show an example of when post-connect blocking is needed by
service workers? A link to a test case for post-connect blocking in Firefox
would be OK.

Cheers,
Brian
