[Service Worker] Termination policy

Service workers don't always get terminated as one would expect.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load <https://mdn.github.io/sw-test/>
2. Navigate to <https://webkit.org>
  => Service Workers <https://mdn.github.io/sw-test/sw.js> is still alive

Relatedly, currently just reloading a page with a service worker causes a new service worker to spawn:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load <https://mdn.github.io/sw-test/>
2. Reload 3 times
  => Multiple Service Workers exist for <https://mdn.github.io/sw-test/sw.js>

Both cases can result in a large list of Service Workers show up as inspector debug targets, and when there are duplicates it is unclear which is the active worker.

When a Service Worker has a debugger/inspector attached we should consider not terminating it until the debugger/inspector has disconnected.

Yup, we never terminate. It's an algorithm we need to implement and then use, obviously.

I'll be stubbing out in: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=179401
