During the F2F we resolved to go with what IE does now which is more  
predictable. I drafted something  
but it should probably get some additional references and a bit more  
clarification. Suggestions are welcome.

What we resolved for ISSUE-29 is that the XHR object has an intrinsic  
property holding Window.document.baseURI from the Window it was created  
in. That intrinsic property never changes, etc.
