Current text sets redirectCount to 0, which is fine.

Current text is not so much clear on the type, but it's not even clear 
for it in this case:

   <iframe src="http://example.com"></iframe>

because that's not a link click, a load from the url bar, a form 
submission, or anything to do with script...  Per the letter of the 
spec, that should be TYPE_RESERVED, which is wrong, I think.

I assume we do want src="http://example.com" to be TYPE_NAVIGATE.  It 
doesn't matter to me too much whether initial about:blank is 
TYPE_NAVIGATE or TYPE_RESERVED, as long as we all agree on which it is 
and have a test.
