Having spoken to @beverloo about this, it seems like this is something that Google plan to decommission. As I noted in my feedback, there are simpler approaches to this, and Google are interested in exploring those further.

I don't think that this is harmful in the sense that this would damage the web ecosystem - at least any more than any other useless addition to the platform would be detrimental - so I think that "non-harmful" is what we should signal.

Sorry for missing the pull request here for a bit.

I guess I'm fine with the non-harmful label, although:

  • it seems like the use cases address real needs, but
  • on the flip side, I'd be a little worried that the API might overly constrain implementations simply because they'd be forced by uses of the API to adopt the same policies as the implementation that the developers were targeting. (This might be avoidable by carefully specifying what the budget numbers mean in a way that's more likely to lead to interoperability across different policies, but I don't think the current draft specifies it very carefully.)
