I have a few concerns.

The Long Task Specification is essentially a way for a website to know if
you have other tabs open and if they are CPU intensive tasks. That seems in
pretty fundamental opposition to the Same Origin Policy.

Device Memory clearly has made an effort to make it 'less fingerprintable'
by only reporting possible values of 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8 - but there is
nothing in the spec about omitting it if desired to reduce fingerprinting.
This is a spec issue though, and not a rechartering one I don't think.
