ISSUE-90: passwd seems underdefined in RFC2617

http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/webapi/issues/90

Raised by: Anne van Kesteren
On product: XMLHttpRequest

For the open() method I was trying to come up with error handling for the user 
and password arguments. It seems that user comes down to quoted-string which is 
defined in http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616 but passwd comes down to:

  passwd   = < user's password >

according to http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc2617 ...

Should probably raise this with the HTTP WG.
