Can you describe what would be this 'anything'?

I would expect WebKit to already know several paths that the WebProcess will use.
For instance, you might know the exact service worker registration directories beforehand.
Should it be used for these?
There are shortcomings of course as Mac/iOS ports often use sandbox extensions.

That leads to the question whether this API is a temporary solution to ease migrating apps to being sandboxed or if it will have more permanent usage.
