Do we really want to overload XMLHttpRequest with "comet-style"  
functionality? XMLHttpRequest is already quite complex. I'd personally  
(and I think the company I represent would agree) much rather go with the  
server-sent events proposal in HTML 5. Remove some functionality from it  
as proposed by the WebKit guys so that it becomes easier to implement and  
author and ship it.
