The change went live as planned on Monday 2/22, with a patch setting the meta referrer to the correct value, it will take up to 30 days to propagate.

Note that on T87276 there is a report that WebKit isnt working, so that will mean a decent subset of the dark traffic doesnt light up after this change.

Hi @Rich_Farmbrough we see the conversation, are going to consult with our legal team which supports the privacy conversations and get back to you sometime next week.

I'm declining this task as I don't see immediate work scheduled on this front. If you disagree, please reopen and update the list of folks that should be involved.
