Chromium is silence about API-keys if you just provide any contend in 
the environment variables for API-key runtime setup since this you may 
want to use spaces ("no key") if you don't need the Google APIs (eg 
Translate). The start-up-script could just provide

export GOOGLE_API_KEY=" "

if they aren't set
The google services like translate seem not to work if you do so (tested 
translate and it did not) and i don't think that you need your clients 
to implicit sign a Google contract as the real API-keys seem to do

friendly greeting
