ISSUE-65: Does "no referrer" specify a state or is it a token? is a token with a space problematic?

Does "no referrer" specify a state or is it a token? is a token with a space problematic?

State:
RAISED
Product:
Referrer Policy
Raised by:
Opened on:
2014-08-27
Description:
I agree that this is potentially confusing. There are three things:

1. There is a referrer policy named "No Referrer": http://w3c.github.io/webappsec/specs/referrer-policy/#referrer-policy-state-no-referrer

2. There is a CSP directive value of "no-referrer", which sets the protected resource's referrer policy to "No Referrer". I need to fix the algorithm here to accept the token values. I'll take care of that in a moment.

3. There is a Fetch token named "no referrer", which tells Fetch not to send a 'referer' header.

I think I just need to do work for #2. I'll update that shortly.

3.
