Since this is a general proposal for design patterns,  it doesn't 
specify an approach for each of our current permission UIs.  I suspect

emails) would likely be tweaked because that's what catalyzed this 

That being said, if there are cases from other permissions UIs that 
don't fit into this model, let me know, so that I can consider them. 
We'd like to get things as consistent as possible, especially as there 
are likely to be more new WebAPIs coming to the browser because of
