Mm, well I changed my mind already. Reopening.

Epiphany really wants to set the WebKitWebsitePolicies only for the particular origin, which is what webkit_policy_decision_use_with_policies(). It does not want to set default policies for the entire web view. But it cannot call webkit_policy_decision_use_with_policies() because that will cause the load to occur in the current view. It really has to use webkit_policy_decision_ignore().

So I think this an API flaw. We need some other way to configure WebKitWebsitePolicies in this case.
