           Version: WebKit Nightly Build

Wikipedia is now using a meta tag for the referrer with origin-when-cross-origin.

This meta tag is now reporting an error on Safari 9.0 and the latest Webkit nightly
[Error] Failed to set referrer policy: The value 'origin-when-cross-origin' is not one of 'no-referrer', 'origin', 'no-referrer-when-downgrade', or 'unsafe-url'. Defaulting to 'no-referrer'. (index.php, line 22)

The reference for this policy is: https://w3c.github.io/webappsec-referrer-policy/#referrer-policy-delivery-meta
Reasoning as to why Wikipedia is using this policy can be found in: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T87276
