[whatwg] getting rid of anonymizing redirects


Some web site developers use redirects to strip out referrer headers from
requests issued from users clicking links on their site. This causes a
blocking round trip and so has a really big impact on web performance.

Can we give developers an alternative to this technique that will not incur
a performance penalty? For instance, can linkable elements support a
łno-referrer˛ attribute or something similar?
