As a part of the deprecation and removal process for AppCache, we would like to allow developers to sign up for a reverse origin trial so that, if needed, they can have more time to transition their AppCache usage over to service workers.
The reasoning for AppCache removal is documented in the blink-dev discussion thread links below.
Previous Intent Threads
Goals for experimentation
Gate the AppCache feature behind an origin trial to give developers who are still using it a chance to transition off of it while not making it available by default.
The experiment began in M83. We started requiring origin trial tokens in M85. We previously targeted to end the experiment in M90, but would like to extend the experiment to end in M94 instead. In M94, we plan to disable AppCache for all users.
Reasons this experiment is being extended
We are still working with large internal Google properties to complete the transition of their AppCache usage over to service workers.

Digging this up: M93 has branched, so we're solidly in the M94 timeframe. Are y'all still on track to drop the OT in this release?
