Details

This is spun out of the 'The future of "remote XUL"' thread:  https://groups.google.com/d/msg/firefox-dev/GEDBHOUaVlM/VbeiBlWcCQAJ.

I believe there was a consensus in that thread that the remote XUL feature is going to continually break in various ways as we do cleanups post-57. Rather than letting that happen, we could explicitly remove support which would simplify the platform and make doing those types of cleanups easier.

I'm not sure if this can ultimately happen in a single bug or if we'll have to break it down further, so just going to get this one on file for now.
