My plan for this bug is as follows:

 * Port PrivateBrowsingTrackingProtectionWhitelist to use session permissions.  This has the advantage that the permissions will be synch'ed up with content processes without us having to write custom IPC code for that.  It will also allow us to simplify the code that queries the permission (and make it slightly more efficient by removing the need to run JS there!).  Session permissions aren't written to disk so this is a suitable choice from a private browsing perspective.
 * Refactor the code in nsChannelClassifier <https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/847b64cc28b74b44c379f9bff4f415b97da1c6d7/netwerk/base/nsChannelClassifier.cpp#437> responsible for checking these settings to make it usable elsewhere.
 * Use that same code in places where we perform our storage checks.
Ah, that would be nice, I already asked why this wasn't initially done a while ago and I don't think I really got a conclusive answer.
