For enterprise use, the system administrator hopes to manage site permissions by himself and don't want users to modify default permissions. Currently we can do it by userChrome.css or something to hide those UIs, but after XUL is ended we need something to alter it.

This is related to the bug 1268422, similar to the bug 1268407.

Currently I think this should be discussed as a part of MCD/mission control desktop feature for enterprise environment.

Done as part of policy.

This looks not fixed yet, for some permissions listed at Ctrl-I (Page Info) => Permissions:

 * Access Your Location
 * Automatically Play Media with Sound
 * Load Images
 * Override Keyboard Shortcuts
 * Receive Notifications
 * Share the Screen
 * Store Data in Persistent Storage
 * Switch to this Tab
 * Use the Camera
 * Use the Microphone

Should I file new bugs for each permission?
We're doing a few of these (location, camera, microphone, notifications) and I see no reason to do the rest.

Our goal is not to add policies for everything in the browser, it's to add policies for things that enterprises need to customize.
