Failing SW registration/... should be advertised in the "blocked' tab of the "Show cookies and other site data..." panel

Project Member Reported by, Oct 1 2014

Issue description

Version: 40.0.2174.0
OS: Windows 7

I'm checking how we are doing against the Chrome privacy team's guidance for SW (go/sw-privacy-review ; on going).

Test cases:
1. From a blank state (e.g. no service worker registered for the origin used in this test)
2. Go to chrome://settings/content and select "Block sites from setting any data"
3. Go to 
4. Notice the cookies blocked icon in the omnibox (triggered thanks to actual cookies being blocked but should triggered on blocked SW registration/... operation as well as Cache operations).
5. Click on the cookies blocked icon
6. Click on "Show cookies and other site data..." link
7. Click on "Blocked"
8. Notice that there is an entry for Indexed DB

9. There should be an entry for SW

9. no entry for SW.

10. Now, click again on the cookies blocked icon.
11. Click on Always allow...
12. Click reload
13. Click on the cookies set icon
14. Click on the "Show cookies and other data..." link
15. On Allowed tab, notice that there is an entry for Indexed DB

16. There should be an entry for SW

16. No entry for SW.

I'm not sure this is a P1 issue (ship blocker). Looping our privacy contact.
Will attach some pictures.
Attached 2 screenshots to illustrate the issue.

Fedback from Markus (summarizing):

This is P2 for M40.

 - nice to have:  change the title to "Cookies and site data" because it's more accurate
 - display allowed SW registrations and blocked SW registrations.
 - make sure that the "cookie blocked" Omnibox icon shows up when a SW registration is blocked
 - For allowed service worker registrations: display the same info as we have on chrome://settings/cookies.
 - For blocked SW registration: URL is enough.

 - It is strange if they show up in one dialog and not in the other.
 - Also, this is the only way for users that block cookies and site data to discover why a page does not work as expected.

Note: the requirements for SW in M41 may change because of upcoming extra capability it will enable. I will work with the privacy team on defining these.

This won't make M40. Markus, is this still the UI we want?

Question for Markus: Is the blocked cookie displayed somewhere on Chrome for Android? I don't see an omnibox icon there like on desktop.

[AUTO] This issue has already been moved once and is lower than Priority 1,therefore removing mstone.

Re #3: I think that we still want to get this UI eventually.

This doesn't need to be restricted.
