Hi,

I made http://tc.labs.opera.com/apis/XMLHttpRequest/send/010.htm which  
shows that Opera switches to readyState = 2 when transmitting something  
large over the wire where Internet Explorer and Firefox (haven't tested  
Safari) stay in readyState = 1 until the whole transaction is over. This  
seems to indicate that readyState = 2 is pretty much useless and just  
becomes a required state to visit before going to state 3. I will update  
the specification soonish to reflect this unless implementors (or someone  
who can convince implementors) want to do it differently.

Cheers,
