In the first line, yes?  That's how Bobby was testing what gets sent 
over HTTP, because that's the simplest way to observe what was sent over 
HTTP in a browser test suite: you just examine the DOM of the resulting 
document.

It's about both, since they're identical, as far as I can tell.  The 
text at 
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/dom.html#dom-document-referrer 
and at 
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/fetching-resources.html#fetch 
step 2 "navigating" case are basically the same, and there's a Note at 
the former that says so.
