It might be nice to add a comment saying that it should stay off until
https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/5803 is resolved.

Is this null-initialized? I can never remember.

When would this be called?  WebKitLegacy?

Aren't unified source files fun?

If I'm reading this correctly, this makes a communication channel between pages
using ephemeral and non-ephemeral data stores.	There's a lot of globals that
should probably be owned by something, and we should probably add a test
verifying that pages with different data stores cannot communicate with each

Why a Vector?  Don't we iterate this or remove from it?  Aren't they all
unique?  Do we need order?
