ISSUE-41: Does XMLHttpRequest have constants for readyState? No.

http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/webapi/issues/41

Raised by: Anne van Kesteren
On product: XMLHttpRequest

Robin revised the specification mostly for IDL markup and made the different
states of readyState constants. However, running:

 <script>
  var r = new XMLHttpRequest;
  alert(r.OPEN_STATE)
 </script>

... in Opera and Firefox returns undefined. I'm removing the constants because
of this. This issue is to make sure everyone is aware of that change. (Unless
someone can point out that Internet Explorer does do constants, but given MSDN
that seems unlikely...)
