[whatwg] [Notifications] Behavior of Notification.requestPermission in workers

Since the entire Notification object is exposed both on window and in
workers, I'd like some clarification on the intended behavior of
Notification.requestPermission() when called in the background.


Some options:

    (1) Request permission in any available foreground contexts. This could
be confusing. It could also be achieved by the worker sending a message to
any foreground windows, allowing the page to provide context about the

    (2) Invoke |callback| with the current permission level. This allows
developers to copy their code between windows and workers if they use the
Notification constructor within the callback when |permission| ==
"granted". This has my preference.

    (3) Ignore.

Any opinions?
