This probably requires some awareness of the network situation.

Enable/disable might solve the consent problem - we only need consent
for the purposes of transmission and if we are not transmitting then
we don't need consent.

The NAT problem is harder.  Tuning keepalives might let the browser
keep the flow responsive.  Being able to tune keepalives requires both
knowledge of what times are appropriate as well as a way of tuning
behaviour.  The TTL hack would allow for separate tuning at both ends
of a flow, but again, that requires knowledge and API changes.
