Hi,

This is a QA Review comment for "The XMLHttpRequest Object"
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-XMLHttpRequest-20060405/

First WD

One of the common mistake, we can read online about XMLHttpRequest is  
that "Dom 3 Load And Save" is the *same* thing but was not implemented.

An example of that is

[[[
Similar functionality is covered in a proposed W3C standard, Document  
Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Load and Save Specification. In the  
meantime, growing support for the XMLHttpRequest object means that is  
has become a de facto standard that will likely be supported even  
after the W3C specification becomes final and starts being  
implemented in released browsers (whenever that might be).

I'm not asking the WebAPI WG to chase all these mistakes available  
everywhere, but the specification (Appendix) or a primer could be a  
good opportunity to fix that.

On a related note, did you coordinate with the DOM WG where a project  
to add a method to DOM 3 for XMLHttpRequest functionnality has been  
proposed in the past by Philippe Le Hégaret?
