Comment (by iandunn):

 Thanks for the detailed response :)

 I looked into browser support for `allow-top-navigation-by-user-
 activation`, but unfortunately it looks like IE,
 edge/platform/issues/14609256/ Edge] and
 [https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1359867 Firefox] haven't
 added support for it yet :(
 With Edge moving to adopt Blink, though, they'll get it as part of that.

 For future reference, Chrome
 [https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5629582019395584 added it in v58],
 and Safari [https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171327 in 11.1
 (13605. / 10.13.4].

 So, it seems like it'll be a few years before that's a viable option :(

 Hopefully there's something else we can do in the meantime.
