ISSUE-115 (xhr-referer): XHR does not specify what URL to use for Referer [XHR]

http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/track/issues/115

Raised by: Maciej Stachowiak
On product: XHR

XHR does not specify what URL to use for Referer. HTML5 specifies this in the Resource Fetch algorithm, but XHR does not use that. This should be specified, and in particular if the XHR is being made with a unique identifier origin it should not send a referer at all.
