This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to publish new WDs of the XHR and  
XHR2 specs.

As with all of our CfCs, positive response is preferred and  
encouraged and silence will be assumed to be assent. The deadline for  
comments is August 18.

-Regards, Art Barstow

> XMLHttpRequest ready for Web Workers. Doug Schepers asked for  
> separate headings for each interface member. This is now done as a  
> side effect of making the two XMLHttpRequest drafts more alike.

> Given the number of changes it seems best to simply publish another

>   http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/XMLHttpRequest-2/
