I feel like this should be addressed - it seems like a mistake to allow websites to get geolocation information without the user being notified.

> Client extension processing  
> Check the [[permissions state]] for geolocation. If the permission state is `"denied"`, the client MUST remove the extension and not pass it to the authenticator. If the permission state is `"prompt"`, the user agent MAY prompt the user and restart this processing, or MAY remove the extension without prompting. If the permission state is `"granted"`, the client creates the authenticator extension input with the Boolean value `true`.
