The reason for such a low-level API is to be able to reuse all the
existing browser infrastructure, so naturally it wouldn't work at all
outside a browser.
If one wants to target both browsers and non-browsers, I'm confident that
there will eventually be a manifest format to do that, even if browsers
the job done.
