[webkit-dev] Request for position on the Origin-Isolation header

Hi again webkit-dev,

I'm just pinging this thread to let you know that in the HTML Standard repository (and Chrome implementation), we're working to rename this feature from "origin isolation" to "origin-keyed agent clusters", with the header going from Origin-Isolation to Origin-Agent-Cluster. This is due to people thinking that the "origin isolation" name implied security guarantees, like Chrome's "site isolation" term or the HTML Standard's "cross-origin isolation" term.

You can read more about the reasoning at https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/6192 and see the renaming pull request at https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/6214.
