Should permission requests require a user gesture? tracks a suggestion to
require a user gesture in navigator.permission.request() calls. I'd
like to find a recommendation from this group for all new
permission-requesting functions and then follow it for the particular
function in the permissions API.

Jan-Ivar's arguing that requiring a gesture hurts Firefox's permission
model, and that other reasons to require a gesture are better handled
through other browser UI.

What do you folks think?
