Quickly scanning the bug I couldn't figure out whether you added hooks
to HTML's navigate algorithm or Fetch' fetch algorithm. In particular,
see the discussion in this bug:


My personal opinion is that these schemes should only have an effect
if you navigate to them, not if you fetch them (the latter should
result in a network error in my opinion).
