beforeunload events need not involve a prompt.

Again, this comes back to what exactly we're trying to measure.  If a 
beforeunload event handler takes 5s to execute and there is no actual 
unload prompts, should those 5s be included in the load time?

What about if there is a prompt?  Does it matter whether the 5s of 
execution time came before or after the prompt?
