[whatwg] allow-popups in iframe sandbox

Just to make sure I understand the proposal correctly : if allow-popups is specified and a new
browsing context is being created, this inherits the sandbox flags of the document
creating the new popup/browsing context ?

This does seem to complicate the algorithm to determine if a navigation is allowed quite a bit.

The allow-popups proposal for iframe seems to be ready for prime time.
The Webkit patch was resolved, MS implemented it in their latest previews.

Are there any objections to this feature? It looks fine to me, and it 
looks like it's time to add it to the spec.
