Hi Ryosuke,

Many people didn't like the noise by the EWS comments, and we removed the 
comments as per previous discussion in: 

I agree with your point that having some kind of notification might be useful.

I proposed some ideas in 
https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-dev/2019-September/030798.html, but 
didn't get much feedback. If we can all agree on a solution, I can look into 
implementing it.
