I wasn't thinking as a hint for the browser, but that's of course a good
idea. I was thinking security. Are there cases where I specifically
would NOT want to share? If so, the only alternative is to guarantee
that no code you ever load will ever try. It would be safer to allow an
author to indicate "this page must not be shared". Guess that's more
of an opt-out. And I don't have a use case for "I don't want to share",
nor could I claim that even if they didn't want to, it would be unsafe
if they did anyway (ie, it might be safe even if they didn't want to
share). Just thinking aloud.
