This is a meta bug to keep track of security mechanisms for the remote about:newtab page.
Depends on: Content-Signature
Depends on: 1235572
At one point there was some offline discussion of whether the streaming package / manifest signing machinery from B2G would be usable instead of Content-Signature, once we'd realized there was some possible duplication of effort there — what was the result of that?

(I'm not arguing for either side here, but it would be nice to have the rationale recorded.)
