So then you just need to add something to the spec that makes it 
perfectly clear that XMLHttpRequest scripts the HTTP subsystem of the 
UA, and does not create its own network connections and implement 
rudimentary HTTP itself...

Perhaps you could add a note of this sort to the spec for 
getAllRequestHeaders() something saying that the UA sees these and 
processes them as it would for an HTTP request initiated by the end user.
