// Historically, diversions were assumed to be shortlived, where it was merely
// a question of diverting some small amount of network traffic back to the
// parent. However, Service Worker child interception made it possible for
// the data to entirely be sourced from the child, which makes diversion
// potentially long-lived. Especially when large files are involved.
// This mechanism is expected to be removed when ServiceWorkers move from
// child intercept to parent intercept (in the short to medium term).
