Ah, ok.  Fair enough.

For what it's worth, in Gecko about:blank documents can either get 
created via an actual url load (completely async like all other url 
loads, goes through the HTML parser, etc) or via explicit synchronous 
creation of an about:blank document (effectively via createDocument, 
some createElement calls, etc).

The latter basically happens any time you ask for a .document from a 
window that doesn't have one yet.
