And to be clear: I don't have strong opinions about cookies
being accessible in Workers, but I do think localStorage needs to
be accessible.  That said, my primary goal here is to make the storage mutex
more reasonable (i.e. something vendors will actually implement).  Shared
worker access would be a plus, though.
