 > do we intentionally keep the lists in sync (even if the occasional embed
 provider doesn't strictly need to be added to the allow list)

 @pento @peterwilsoncc In my testing I actually found a user-facing reason
 to put providers on the allowlist — HTML from trusted providers isn't


 For example, the Pocket Casts embed has several links that open in a new
 tab, and a responsive layout with rounded corners — all of which was
 broken until I added it to the allowlist. So though auto-discovery could
 technically embed _some_ version of the Pocket Casts player, it wasn't the
 best experience:
