FWIW, histograms can only tell you a percentile. We never report back URLs
due to privacy concerns. So, it's somewhat underpowered compared to
experimentally removing a feature and seeing what sites break. I'm not
saying that's not a useful signal, just clarifying what data is possible
for Chromium to gather in the wild.
