CSP 'referrer' directive (removed)

The CSP 'referrer' directive allows site owners to set a Referrer Policy (https://w3c.github.io/webappsec-referrer-policy/) for their page from an HTTP header. The 'referrer' directive has been removed from the spec and replaced with the Referrer-Policy header. This feature was added in Chrome 33.
