Actually navigation-policy-decision-requested won't be emitted at all for
target=_blank links, and as you point out, create-web-view doesn't have enough
information. So we either need a new signal like it's done here, or implement
the missing cases in the current signals (I'd prefer the later i.e. having one
signal for all the "user clicks on a link" cases, but if that's not wanted due
to the design, this is OK).
