Introducing a brand new version of XHR doesn't solve the existing 
interoperability problems the current version that people actually use. 
  I am opposed to introducing another new object for this problem.  IE 
already has ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP") that it can use for 
legacy compat while making XMLHttpRequest() conform to this spec.
