Hmmm. Does FeatureObserver detect features invoked from web apps like Gmail?

Because I'm fairly certain that Gmail and Google Calendar still use
webkitNotifications for their notifications. Not to say that we shouldn't
land this patch anyway - just pointing out that this may still be used more
often than your stats would indicate.
