Hi All,

There are a lot of algorithms in the CORS spec that contains steps like:

If there is a network error
   do X

However I haven't been able to find a clear definition of what counts
as a "network error". Does this include successful HTTP requests that
return 4xx or 5xx status codes? Or just errors in the lower level of
the stack, such as aborted TCP connections?

It would be good to have this clearly defined, preferrably with a link
in all the places where it is used as a condition in an algorithm.

/ Jonas
