Fetch API: RequestInit.referrer

This feature enables users to specifying request's referrer as a construct argument. Note this is different from Request.referrer which was already introduced. In service workers, a captured request had the service worker's referrer (i.e. the service worker's script URL), but with this feature the request keeps the original referrer.
