Hmm, serviceWorker still seems best.

Yeah, for service workers the default would be a persistent one. I was
thinking we could allow an explicit

  serviceWorker: null

to override that, but I'm not sure it buys us much. The lifetime of
non-persistent notifications would be the lifetime of the global they
are created in (or presumably lifetime of the active document in case
of a document environment).

That would work too. Not sure I have a good sense of what would be best here.
