Sigh... we'll need to discuss what to do. Unfortunately, these are 
public APIs and this will be extremely disruptive. If it's needed for 
site isolation, I don't see that we have much choice. But if we remove 
these APIs, Linux distros will get stranded on the last version of 
WebKit that still supports them and will be unable to take our further 

Deprecation is a lot easier than removal. If we can keep deprecated 
APIs working and just disable site isolation when they're used, that 
would be much less disruptive.
