tracker for that to make it easy.
|Implement your change as a Runtime-Enabled Feature.
|Your feature should have interop tests, preferably
web-platform-tests. If Chrome is the first one implementing a spec,
the requirements for web-platform-tests coverage + quality will be
fairly high for shipping.

* ||There is an automatic and mandatory 1 week period when
your feature is disabled at the end of the origin trial,
before it potentially graduates to Stable. Tokens will
expire 1 week before the earliest stable channel launch
date, but note that a stable launch takes many days to
deploy to users. This exists to encourage feature authors to
make breaking changes, if appropriate, before the feature
lands in stable, and to make clear to clients of the origin
trial feature that in all circumstances the feature will be
disabled (hopefully only briefly) at some point.
