#42450: Customize: Ensure customize_autosaved requests only use revision of logged-
in user

 To reproduce:

 1. Make a change in the customizer to the site title.
 2. Save draft.
 3. Open the preview link in another tab, but then append with
 `customize_autosaved=on` to the URL.
 4. Make a second change to the site title, but do not Save Draft.
 5. Switch to other tab (and reload) and see your second change appearing
 in the tab even though you did't save draft.
 6. Now open the preview URL from that other tab in an incognito window,
 and you'll see the user's autosave revision also applying there

 Previously #42433.

 The logic for adding the `customize_autosaved` param to the frontend
 preview URL (#39896) should get improved, in case a plugin does want to
 preview the autosaved state. In the mean time, the preview link feature is
 only intended for previewing the fully saved state, not autosaves.
