            Bug ID: 228323
           Summary: [ITP] Investigating making cross-site Referrer
                    stripping stricter, using origin
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Local Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading

Currently on ToT, with the Referrer-Policy default now strict-origin-when-cross-origin, the ITP cross-site referrer stripping only applies when a Referrer-Policy of unsafe-url or no-referrer-when-downgrade is set.

It would be worthwhile seeing if we can get away (compat wise) with making ITP stricter than the current cross-site restrictions; specifically, it would be nice to see if we could enforce this on origin boundaries as this would mean we could simply treat unsafe-url as origin-when-cross-origin and no-referrer-when-downgrade as strict-origin-when-cross-origin.

To me, this is aesthetically nicer, as our behaviour can then always be explained in terms of Referrer-Policy.
