Comment (by mcs):

 One more thing:  Kathy reminded me that gk asked during the last tbb-dev
 meeting what kind of testing we did to convince ourselves that this patch
 will not introduce a fingerprinting vector.  We created a web page that
 tried to load chrome://browser/skin/tabbrowser/tab-selected-start.svg
 several ways:
 * <img src="...">
 * <iframe src="...">
 * <object type="data/svg+xml" ...>
 The only image load this was not blocked is the <img>-based one, and (as
 far as I know) the SVG DOM cannot be accessed from an <img> tag (so there
 is no way for a web page to ask for CSS computed style in order to grab
 the color values we use).
