Sanitizer API

Adds features for sanitizing user input, either as an addition to or a replacement for sanitization that may already have been implemented.


User input sanitization is a necessary and common activity of many web applications, but it's difficult to get right. As a component of the web platform it's easier to harden the sanitizer implementation and keep it up-to-date. Offering a high-quality sanitizer with good defaults (without blocking developers from using their own, if they choose) would improve security, and make it more accessible.
