Description

This was forbidden to prevent those tabs inheriting the Principal, but in bug 1310331, we added a flag that prevents that from happening, so we should allow it.

Out of interest what is the use-case(s) for doing this?
Viewing images, or dynamically-generated pages, or interesting things we cannot predict :)

A good rule of thumb might be that if we can open it in a browser tab, we should be able to open it via this API. Anything else will come back to haunt us sooner or later.
