 network isolation

 Can you explain why the above patch is needed? Why aren't we passing the
 correct aNode in all cases? I am worried that we will poke around in the
 ancestor elements looking for a "firstparty" attribute in a lot more cases
 now, and I am not sure what the implications are (but I have not run the
 code yet).

 testing to our cache isolation regression test patch

 It would have helped me if there was a comment inside the
 observeChannels() callback that explained how the check worked, e.g.,
 // All "thirdPartyChild" resources are loaded from example.net, so we
 // the first party host to be .com or .org.
