In response to Comment #19:

I reviewed IE's behavior under many of the test cases. It appears that in IE,
the firing of unload is tied to whether or not a 'load' event was ever fired.
The firing of the load event may or may not occur depending on the timing of
the parser, which runs asynchronously while the new page is requested from the
server (not blocking). At a point when the navigated web page is partially
recieved, IE simply kills the old parser, which is why load may not fire.

Despite IE currently failing some of these tests, we are OK with the spec
change.
