Hmm, fair.  I just looked up the history of this code in Gecko, and the 
best I can give you is 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48202#c6 and 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48202#c30

So it's possible that the original behavior was just an oversight that 
then got copied.  Someone with access to a browser version control 
system from before 1998 would need to look to make sure...
