Well at least it works in Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Chrome.

With that broad support, I imagine that removing this defacto feature in
XHR L2 would cause a lot of heartburn for developers who probably rely
upon it today.

It is not supported by the specification as it stands today, no, and
never  
was, and is not supported by all implementations. However, I think we  
should add it, as I explained in my previous email.
