We have never exposed an API to send/receive message to/from Web extensions to allow applications use their own IPC. Now with PSON enabled it's a lot more difficult to implement the custom IPC on the application side, because applications need to keep track of all the web processes launched, and the changes of web process in the web view to send the messages to the right extension. That's already done internally by WebKit, so it would be easier to provide a simple API so that apps don't need to worry about the web process being used.
