Since you still work with the XMLHttpRequest object I think it should be  
in the name of the constructor as well. "Uniform" doesn't tell you much  
about what it is doing. "Anon" is much clearer in that sense. The user  
agent will keep the request anonymous. That the author can put identifying  
information on top of that is up to the author.
