Hi webkit-dev,

I'd like to request an official position on the Heavy Ad Intervention.

WICG/Interventions Issue: https://github.com/WICG/interventions/issues/68
HTML Spec PR: https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/5885
Chromestatus: https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/4800491902992384

Other information:

This is a browser intervention which unloads ads that use an egregious
amount of system resources. While we aren't proposing a full spec for this
intervention, we are proposing an update to the HTML spec which allows user
agents to unload iframes/embeds at will.

Any feedback is appreciated.
