Jonas already mentioned it in another e-mail and this feature was indeed  
planned (by me 8-)) for XMLHttpRequest level 2. responseText already  
follows text/html rules for encoding detection etc. but for parsing we  
probably need to state that it needs to run with support for scripting  
disabled which affects how <noscript> is parsed etc. I'm wondering if we  
should do it like that or have scripts not run and parse <noscript> as if  
scripting was enabled. (I'm not sure whether HTML 5 has an option for the  
latter, but that's for instance how html5lib currently works.)

Any opinions on this? Anything else I should pay attention too when adding  
this feature?
