Add purpose member to the Web App Manifest (deprecated)

Chrome will use the purpose member in the Web App Manifest to determine which icon to use in the status bar for notifications for "Improved Add to Homescreen" web apps (described https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJwrBbze_Ec) This is already possible for Android M+ using notification badges described in https://www.chromestatus.com/features/5630897160192000 Using the "purpose" member will enable doing this for pre-M Android
