[liberationtech] Another loss for the Internet

Hi!

I would like to point to this change in the future W3C spec:

https://github.com/w3c/webappsec/commit/cbfaa8edfadebf21a9c7428242c12e45934d8c55

This change effectively allows a website to prevent bookmarklets from
working. In essence, content providers can prevent users to execute
their own bookmarklets and change how website behaves. It requires
users to use extensions and not simple scripts.

I think this is a step back and makes web something where user is not
in control anymore.
