What is the proposal here? Wouldn't allowing something like:

interface XMLHttpRequest {
  ...
  const DOMString REQUESTTYPE_FOO = "foo";
  ...
};

sort of defeat the purpose since people are bound to get into cargo-cult
copying of code like:

xhr.requestType = XMLHttpRequest.REQUESTTYPE_FOO;

as well as rat-hole discussions about if best practice is to do the above or to
use the sting "foo" directly.


Or is the proposal here something wholly different and I'm totally
misunderstanding things?
