We can special case "initial about:blank" page in the navigationStart
definition - not a big deal. But could you look at the spec and see if it
makes sense when we have a page that was not navigated to?

How do things like navigation type or navigation start make sense when
there is no navigation? And do we update the processing model? The spec
fundamentally assumes there is a navigation.

It'd be great if you could suggest the actual wording to incorporate the
"initial about:blank" page such that the entire spec makes sense.
