Implementations seem to vary and it the results I get are not really  
consistent. If anyone has a good way to test this please tell me.

I have changed the editor's copy and I'm wondering if there are any  
problems with the following text for implementors:

   Invocations of this method when readyState is not 0
   (Uninitialized) or 4 (Loaded) must be ignored.

   Invoking this method when readyState is 4 (Loaded)
   must be identical to when readyState is 0
   (Uninitialized). Also, all members of the object
   must be set to their initial values.
