Just for reference - Firefox comes with advanced set of configuration options for referers https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Referrer

Most important parameters are:
- when to send (all requests, on interaction, never)
- trimming (removing path/query)
- origin control (don't send to 3rd parties)

Perhaps changing the default behaviour would be fine, but I'm not aware of all usecases. From privacy oriented web browser (like Cliqz) perspective it's definitely a way forward, but I could imagine some apps could experience breakage or may prefer to have referes. It's more for WebKit team to decide how much of general purpose tool the WKWebView should be.
