pastly: I have a potential backport in my bug_27919 ( What would be a good way to test that one, to make sure it is actually doing what you need?

I will make a little toy extension that expects the API to exist and logs the securityInfo to the browser debug console.

Kathy and I checked the dependencies and we think you got them all. We also checked the accuracy of the backported patches and everything looks good to us.
