For WebExtensions in a distribution, we need the ability to set preferences that are then read by the WebExtensions so they can know if they are part of a distribution.

I'm de-duping this.  The use cases are different and I don't think they should be conflated into storage.managed.  A distribution may depend on distribution specific settings in its addons, such as partner codes, etc.

We could provide storage.distribution as a firefox specific api.  storage.json can live in the distributions directory, and storage.distribution would be read-only.

They're not. storage.managed provides mechanisms to specify managed settings at a few different levels, including group policy, profile, and distribution. They all wind up in the same storage.managed bucket.
