Note that just referring to a few specific concepts defined in HTML5
does not force anyone to implement the rest of HTML5. As things stand
right now it's quite possible to implement XMLHttpRequest according to
spec, without implementing almost anything in the HTML5 spec.

Put it another way, abstracting out these concepts from the HTML5 spec
would on a technical level not change what anyone would need to
implement.
