Copied from WHATWG bug 18860:

Jonas Sicking:

When doing XHR/EventSource/importScript fetches from a Worker or SharedWorker,
the referrer shouldn't be some document, but rather the URL of the worker
itself. Same thing if a worker creates a sub worker.

This is similar to how the referrer of a background image linked to from a CSS
stylesheet is the URL of the stylesheet, not the URL of a html Document.

Will get fixed with
