(Whiteboard: [browsingData][triaged])

For the containers experiment we are getting requests for the ability to behave like private tabs in certain circumstances or move from one container to another.

Adding the ability to do the following:
browser.browsingData.remove(
  {cookieStoreId: "firefox-default"},
  {cookies: true, history: true, formData: true, cache: true, ...}
);

For moving to another container we actually might need (this might need a separate bug though):

browser.browsingData.move(
  {cookieStoreId: "firefox-default"},
  {cookieStoreId: "firefox-container-1"},
  {cookies: true, history: true, formData: true, cache: true, ...}
);

This would allow a website to move it's data from one context to another cleanly.
Summary: Consider extend browsingData.RemovalOptions to allow removal by cookieStoreId → Consider extending browsingData.RemovalOptions to allow removal by cookieStoreId
The move is probably more contentious, could you move that to a seperate bug. The ability to pass a cookieStoreId to browsingData makes sense though, we should do that.
