This is a temporary stopgap until we can roll out the improved install flow, at which point only some origin permissions will be granted by default (details TBD).

At the minimum, this means we need to at least show which permissions will be granted.

Need documentation: MV3 host permissions now appear in the installation prompt by default.

The current recommendation still stands: Extension authors need to design their extension such that it can deal with revoked host permissions. And in case a new host permission is added, it is not shown to users currently (bug 1893232).

This should not only be documented on MDN, but also in the extension workshop - https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/manifest-v3-migration-guide/#host-permissions
