http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/webapi/XMLHttpRequest/publish/XMLHttpRequest.html?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8  
is the latest draft available. It has a new section which points to all  
the issues that have been raised so far and need addressing. Here are the  
changes I'd like to make at some point:

* Allow all types of methods

Some special language for some methods, like HEAD, is probably still  
needed but I guess most could be generic.

* Make XMLHttpRequest implement EventTarget
* Make onreadystatechange an EventListener
* Add a section regarding events containg:
   - abort
   - load
   - error
   - readystatechange
   - progress?
* Map those events to .onxxx attributes
* Add a security section
